Over 200 research papers, several review articles and one text book (on the use of group theory).
Many papers concern the theory and calculation of the electronic structure of solids including surfaces, with particular emphasis on aspects of interatomic bonding and structure. More recently there has been a growing involvement with computer simulation for understanding solids. Much of the last 25 years have been taken up with various collaborations with mineralogists to apply physics ideas and techniques to silicates.
Since 1983 I have been active in helping to build cooperation between researchers in Europe on electronic structure of solids and ab initio computer simulation of materials with their structures, properties and processes. See the Psi-k network and the Trieste series of workshops still known as 'Total energy and force methods'.
