Description 
SCHOOL RELATED MATERIAL:  Video recording, slides of lectures, and handson material can be retrieved through the online programme;  Final list of participants (updated actual participation at the end of the School) and Book of Poster Abstracts are available through links at foot;
* * *
The School addresses senior PhD students and experienced researchers with prior working knowledge of DFT.
Theoretical and handson training will focus on abinitio calculations of many properties relating to the electronphonon interaction, for applications in condensed matter physics, materials physics, and nanoscience. Starting from an introduction to the background on electronphonon physics and related materials properties from the point of view of abinitio calculations, we will show the participants how to perform cutting edge electronphonon calculations using a suite of electronic structure codes, including EPW, Wannier90, Quantum ESPRESSO, and ABINIT.
Topics:
• Density functional perturbation theory • Electronphonon coupling • Phononassisted optical absorption • Maximallylocalized Wannier functions • Temperature dependence of the electronic bandstructure • Electronic transport using the Boltzmann transport equation • Phonondriven superconductivity Lecturers: S. de Gironcoli, SISSA P.
