"Materials surface: Theory and Experiment Interplay"

The talk will illustrate how contrasting theory and experiment can help the understanding of surface properties and reactions. For instance, how electronic and structural properties and surface contamination can fundamentally affect the functionality the surface will be discussed. Several examples of first principle and Monte-Carlo simulation/modelling will be covered.
