Tuturial on Siesta program

  1. Oct 11, 2008 #1
    Hi all,

    I'm searching a tutorial on the usage of Siesta software. I have found the manual of Siesta from the developer's web site (http://www.uam.es/departamentos/ciencias/fismateriac/siesta/ [Broken]) but I'm now looking for some example files and explainations. Could you please point me to a tutorial link, file if you know one?

    You probably checked the official site's tutorials? Those can be of some use, does the current release have examples / templates included? Long time since had anything to do with Siesta.

    Hi Perennial,

    Yes I've checked the site, there is a manual that gives the explaination of commands. Also, there are exampe *.fdf files in the Siesta folder but I'm looking a tutorial that explains all the capabilities of Siesta on examples, if any.

    yep, don't know if such is directly available but you'd have to browse & read the material on the site and parse it from there, like the "execution tutorial"

    http://www.uam.es/departamentos/ciencias/fismateriac/siesta/Tutorials/Barcelona-2007/Basic-Execution.ppt [Broken]

    and the "siesta-basics" slideset for one.

    Short and sweet general paper: http://www.riken.go.jp/lab-www/library/publication/review/pdf/No_29/29_042.pdf [Broken]

    Thanks Perennial. I've downloaded all the stuff from official site. If I find extra files, I'll share on this board.
