  • Achieving a correct description of materials with open and
    highly localized d and f shells (strongly correlated materials)
    by density functional theory (DFT) remains among the most
    challenging tasks in theoretical condensed matter physics.
    In the seminar I will present a few examples of transition-metal oxides
    and rare-earth 4f-electron systems, where the incorporation of
    strong electron interactions within the DFT+U method leads
    to better description of interatomic forces and phonon energies.
