Electronic structure and dynamics


The physical and chemical properties of molecules, clusters and solids to a large extent are determined by the systems' electronic structure. The aim of our research is to theoretically understand and quantitatively predict the structure and dynamics of finite electronic systems, like clusters and molecules. Our preferred theory is (time-dependent) density functional theory, which we do not only employ but also further develop with a focus on orbital functionals.
