If you have a question about this talk, please contact Dr Jonathan Keeling.

This talk reviews the local approach to electronic structure, including von Laue’s black body theorem, the recursion method, and continued fractions. I will also talk about new work involving a generalization of periodic boundary conditions. This improves convergence even when there are band gaps, and makes the unphysical energy sheet numerically accessible.

This talk is part of the Theory of Condensed Matter series.
