Thesis: "ab-initio" materials simulations for correlated electron systems with defects

Research interests: We are nowadays able to face the problem of determining the electronic structure of crystals by means of powerful "ab-initio" techniques, allowing us to study complex materials and extract many physical observables with high precision. Nevertheless, when we compare the theoretical results with the experimental data we often have to take into account the possibility of defects in the real material. Moreover, the controlled or uncontrolled presence of defects can give rise to effects absent in the pure material. This Thesis' project aims to investigate the effects of defects in real strongly correlated materials with a focus on oxide systems with modern "ab-initio" techniques.
