Biblical Humanism and Scholasticism in the Age of Erasmus (Brill's Companions to the Christian Tradition, V. 9)

Through the center a while, dialectical disputation was once the present approach to scholarly inquiry. within the 15th century, in spite of the fact that, humanists challenged the scholastic technique, featuring as a substitute historic and philological ways. This quantity makes a speciality of the polemic over the precise method of religious study.

It is found t h a t the bonds between the atoms in a molecule can be described more accurately or more easily with this theory than with existing methods most commonly used by chemists, namely the Hartree-Fock theory. A well-known example is the bond in the molybdenum dimer, M o . T h e Hartree-Fock theory verified the measured bond 2 lengths, but only after very extensive computer calculations [13]. Density functional theory required far less calculation for the same result [14]. 5 P r e d i c t i o n of t h e light e m i s s i o n of m a t e r i a l s When considering the application of materials in LEDs, lasers and television tubes, the elecĀ­ tronic structure is extremely important.

T h e only input is the atomic number of silicon from the Periodic Table: 14. 2 Semiconductor surfaces A good understanding of semiconductor surfaces and interfaces between semiconductors is very important for the continuing development of IC technology. Ab initio calculations based on the density functional theory can contribute substantially here. We shall discuss one spectacular example: the (111) surface of silicon. T h e atoms at the surface of a semiconductor and those just beneath it are not generally in the positions t h a t might be expected from the periodic arrangement of the a t o m s in the semiconductor.
