Novel Materials Discovery

Project description

Novel Materials Discovery (NOMAD CoE) is a European Centre of Excellence on exascale computing. This project aims at bringing existing electronic-structure software to the exascale via developing high-performance libraries and high-performance workflows. The Electronic Structure group at the University of Latvia contributes to the project with developments and algorithms for hybrid functionals and the GW method with the framework of augmented plane waves + local orbitals.

Further details about the project are available on the NOMAD CoE website.
