numerical techniques & skills

1. Das has developed a quantum mechanical atomistic quasiparticle-GW or QP-GW code which computes the state-of the art electron-electron interaction spectra, and dressed single-particle spectra, many spectroscopic and transport properties of correlated systems.
2. First principle code TB-LMTO (Tight Binding Linear Muffin-Tin Orbital code from the German group of Prof. O. K. Andersen); Wien-2K (commercial), KKR (Internal code of Bansil's group); FEFF (Prof. J. Rehr's group), and VASP
3. I have more than 9 years of extensive experience in programming in Fortran 77/90/95 and MPI parallelization techniques, Matlab, Mathematica, and C/C++.
