**General Questions and Answers / HELP! Can we consider the Coulomb interaction in the ATK?**

« **on:**March 5, 2011, 02:50 »

Hello,everyone,

The physics origin of magnetism is the Coulomb interaction, if it does not take the Coulomb interaction into account, how can we valid the calculated results?

So in the ATK calculation, is it necessary to consider the coulomb interaction? And how induce the coulomb interaction in the DFT calculations?

What is the effect on magnetism when we consider the Coulomb interaction explicitly?

And could anybody provide me some references about the effects?

Thank you,these questions have puzzled me a long time, please help me.
