• The Gutzwiller variational method for strongly correlated systems 

    Sherafati, Mohammad, 1974- (University of Missouri--Columbia, 2013)
    In this dissertation, we have presented our research on new developments in the Gutzwiller variational method as well as the applications of the method to two specific correlated electron systems of current interest: (i) ...
  • Theory of lattice effects on magnetic interactions in solids 

    Meskine, Hakim, 1972- (University of Missouri--Columbia, 2005)
    This dissertation focuses on studying the effect of lattice distortions on the magnetic properties of nickelates and manganites. These two families of materials have great potential in industrial applications in the fields ...
  • Theory of photo-induced ferro-magnetism in dilute magnetic semiconductors 

    Satpathy, Sashi Sekhar, 1956- (University of Missouri--Columbia, 2006)
    This thesis is a theoretical study of photo-induced ferro-magnetism in dilute magnetic semiconductors. When light is incident on these systems, electrons and holes are created across the band gap. These particles interact ...
  • Theory of the two-dimensional airy electron gas: Hartee-Fock and density-functional studies 

    Thulasi, Sunita, 1974- (University of Missouri--Columbia, 2006)
    Transition-metal oxides are one of the most interesting and heavily researched materials in condensed matter physics for the range of unique properties they exhibit, like colossal magneto resistance and high temperature ...
