2008 is here. And it has been here for a while now. I'm just getting started on a new job so I haven't published anything new for a while. With the job change there is also a small change (not a big one in this case) on my research area. I will start doing some Density Functional Calculations (DFT) so I might be talking a little bit about it on here from time to time. In the mean while I'm using the MIT open courseware to start learning the techniques used to do this kind of calculations. If you are interested you can take a look at Atomistic Computer Modeling of Materials.
