With almost 30 years of existence, Dynamical Mean-Field theory (DMFT) is becoming a standard to go beyond Density Functional Theory in the systems where mean-field theory fails. Typical systems involve correlated centers that need some strongly-correlation treatment. DMFT uses a mapping into the Anderson impurity model, solving a Kondo problem and then modifies the mean-field solution of the non-correlated part by suitable self-energies that take into account the correlation.

**Dr. David Jacob** (Ikerbasque fellow of the Nano-Bio Spectroscopy group) is an expert in the Kondo problem and in DMFT. He will teach us about the strongly-correlated problem in electronic structure calculations, DMFT and the limitations of DMFT.

The course will consists of four lectures of 90 minutes each, **November Tuesdays from 11H30 to 13H00, main DIPC seminar room**:
