The "CRYSTAL tutorial project" started in 2000, when the first "Ab initio modeling in solid state chemistry - MSSC2000" school was organized. MSSC2001, MSSC2002, MSSC2003 (Torino), EACAS (Pau, France), MSSC2004 (London, UK), MASP2004 (Barcelona, Spain), MSSC2006 (Torino), ASCS2006 (Spokane, USA), MSSC2007 (Torino) and MSSC2008 (London, UK), MSSC2009 Torino Edition, MSSC2009 London Edition, MSSC2010 (London), MSSC2011 Torino Edition, MSSC2011 London Edition, MSSC2012 (London), followed.
A review article is devoted to a basic introduction to CRYSTAL as a tool for quantum simulation in solid state chemistry :
Work is in progress: we appreciate suggestions, criticisms, comments, sent to firstname.lastname@example.org
"Basic tutorials" give general information about the main features of the code, "advanced tutorials" show how to use CRYSTAL capabilities in a specific research field (see references).
Refer to "CRYSTAL09 User's Manual" for detailed information.
For most of the topics above refer to :
