Linear scaling DFT is becoming a relatively mature technique1, with several codes available world-wide, and applications to systems with tens of thousands to millions of atoms2 being published. I will briefly describe the basic ideas of linear scaling DFT , with reference to the CONQUEST code3, and then go on to discuss our recent developments, including molecular dynamics on 32,000+ atoms4, new directions in basis sets5, and applications to the growth of strain-induced Ge islands on silicon.
