Modern computational methods are proving to be invaluable in the first-principles design of new materials with specific targeted functionalities. It will be illustrated their utility with two examples from the field of multiferroics: First, the design of new materials for electric-field control of magnetism, and second, testing extensions to the standard model by searching for the electric dipole moment of the electron.The language of the presentation is English.
Free entrance, guests are welcome
