"An Efficient Real-Space Method for Orbital-Free Density Functional Theory"

Abstract

I will describe an efficient implementation of the Truncated-Newton method for energy minimization in the context of orbital-free density functional theory. I will illustrate the efficiency and accuracy of the method with numerical simulations in an Aluminium FCC lattice.
