## Physics

### Research interests

- Electronic structure calculations: Density Functional Theory (DFT), pseudopotentials
- High Order Finite Element Method (hp-FEM): mesh generation, assembly, automatic adaptivity (hpfem.org)
- Sparse solvers: linear equations, eigenproblems, nonlinear problems
- Symbolic manipulation (SymPy)

### Theses

Ph.D.: Physics in Screening Environments
(phd_thesis.pdf)

Master: Calculation of electron structure in the framework of DFT in real space
(master.pdf)

Bachelor: Numerical solution of the radial Dirac equation in pseudopotential
construction (bachelor.pdf)

#### Theoretical Physics Reference

I have collected all my physics and math notes into an open source book that I call theTheoretical Physics Reference. At that link you can find html version of the book, source code, pdf and also order a physical hardcover book.

#### Greek Letters

English pronunciation of Greek letters: greekletters.ps### Conferences
