Matter under extreme conditions from first principles

Dr. Rafi Ullah
SBASSE 10-301

In this presentation I would talk about the density functional theory – a reformulation of quantum mechanics for many body systems. How density functional theory can be helpful in understanding the nature of electrides – a purportedly new phase of matter that occurs at very high pressures. I would also discuss the time dependent analogue of density functional theory and its applications to the problem of radiation matter interaction.
