Plane-wave Pseudopotential Method¶
The Plane-wave Pseudopotential Method is based upon the implementation of plane-waves as a basis set for representing the electronic wavefunctions of a material 1, as well as the adoption of pseudopotentials 2.
This method is widely used as an effective algorithmic recipe for the computational formulation and implementation of the DFT theoretical model.
This page explains the default conventions used for the method.
This page contains a list of the fundamental computational parameters involved in the Plane-wave Pseudopotential Method.
