Electronic Structure Course

Below are homework projects and tutorial notes for a first year graduate course in electronic structure given at Ball State University, based on Richard Martin's textbook. Links to more electronic structure resources are here and homework projects using VPython to visual crystal structures and phonons are here. This material is based upon work supported by the National Science Foundation under Grant No. 0812195.

Slater model of the atomic density

Python application with convenient GUI interface to visualize the atomic density of any atom using J. C. Slater's classic shielding model of the atom and the original Slater-type orbitals. Requires Python 2.7, gnuplot, and additional python modules easygui.py and gnuplot-py.py. Developed by Neal Coleman, based on work supported by NSF grant 0812195.
