Programming language: Fortran, C, Python, Shell Nature of problem: Highly accurate ab initio calculation of the electronic structure of periodic solids and of the resulting physical, spectroscopic and magnetic properties for diverse material classes with different strengths and kinds of electronic correlation. Solution method: The many electron problem is considered at different levels of theory: density functional theory, many body perturbation theory in the GW approximation with different degrees of self consistency (notably quasiparticle self-consistent GW) and dynamical mean field theory. The solution to the single-particle band problem is achieved in the framework of an extension to the linear muffin-tin orbital (LMTO) technique including a highly precise and efficient full-potential implementation. An advanced fully-relativistic, non-collinear implementation based on the atomic sphere approximation is used for calculating transport and magnetic properties.
