Numerical analysis of augmented plane wave methods for full-potential electronic structure calculations∗
Revised: 11 June 2014
This paper investigates the augmented plane wave methods which are widely used in full-potential electronic structure calculations. These methods introduce basis functions that describe different regions using different discretization schemes. We construct a nonconforming method based on this idea and present an a priori error analysis for both linear Schrödinger type equations and nonlinear Kohn−Sham equations. Some numerical experiments are presented to support our theory.
