1 Take-home postcard

2 Basis set: Atomic orbitals s p d f SIESTA: Strictly localized (zero beyond cut-off radius)

3 Effective potential for valence electrons Pseudopotential r (a.u.) V(r) The internal electrons do not participate in the chemical bond

4 All electronPseudopotential Muffin-Tin LAPW Plane waves Localized Orbitals Simple taxonomy of Ab-initio codes

5 Pseudopotential generation Number of k-points Electronic temperature XC functional: LDA, GGAs Harris functional vs SCF Spin polarization SCF convergence tolerance Supercell size (solid & vacuum) Geometry relaxation tolerance Basis set: Size (SZ, DZ, DZP...) Range (Shape) Real space mesh cutoff Things to keep in mind Plane-wave cutoff SIESTAPW codes Lab Apparatus

6 Basis Size Quick and dirty calculations Highly converged calculations Complete multiple-ζ + Polarization + Diffuse orbitals Minimal basis set (single- ζ; SZ) Depending on the required accuracy and available computational power + Basis Optimization
