Hylleraas Seminar, Bin Gao
Hylleraas Friday seminar, hosted in Oslo
Speaker: Bin Gao
Title: On the origin of bonding in metals: Chromium and sodium as case studies
Abstract: In this talk we shall adopt the PATMOS model (Perturbed AToms in MOlecules and Solids) to analyse bonding in metals. The concept of perturbed atoms is ideally suited for such an analysis. The bonding energy per atom can be calculated in terms of distortion energies for the atoms involved and Coulomb, exchange and correlation energies between pair of atoms.
The Hylleraas seminars alternate between Oslo (Room V205) and Tromsø (Room C329), and are broadcasted by video conference to the other place.
