Robert Seiringer, Zoom (link in description): Recent (mathematical) results on Density Functional Theory
Wednesday, December 01, 2021, 11:00am - 12:00pm
Given that the Schr?dinger equation for atoms and molecules cannot be solved efficiently numerically, in practice one has to resort to approximate theories for doing calculations. Density Functional Theory is probably the most successful and widely used method in quantum chemistry. In this talk I will explain its mathematical structure, and outline some recent results on the validity of the local density approximation, the uniform electron gas and the sharp constant in the Lieb-Oxford inequality. (Joint work with Elliott Lieb and Mathieu Lewin.) https://utexas.zoom.us/j/95420502143
