Abstract: 
The project is to design, analyze and approve magnetic devices based on spin-torque transfer mechanism. The theoretical/computational part is mainly based on Ab-initio Density Functional Theory and non-equilibrium Green's functions method, as implemented in Smeagol code. Some further development of the code will be also necessary. Due to the very high complexity of the method and the code, the project requires considerable computational resources. This code is parallelized and well suited for the parallel machines like Lonsdale.
