The aim of the project is to develop an ab initio electron theory for systems
with high application potential in spintronics and nanoelectronics.
We propose to investigate systematically physical properties of solids,
clusters, and nanostructures based on their electronic structure.
We wish to address electron transport and other dynamical phenomena, exchange
interactions, energetics, phase stability, and selfassembly of nanostructures.
We will pay a particular attention to a correct treatment of electron
