Student is introduced into the field of the state of the art first principles methods to calculate electronic structure of solids, employing number of approximations as well as the to learn about the limits of the methodology. Following theoretical treatment of many physical quantities based on simple models, the practic training to obtain the same quantities from first principles calculations will be utilized.
