The present chapter provides you with the basics of phonons, it gives you a guide on how the full phonon spectrum can be calculated with an auxiliary code to your DFT code (which requires quite some computing resources), and it shows how so-called soft modes can be used to predict structural phase transitions.

Not all of the available material is fine-tuned, but it should be sufficiently clean to meet its purpose.
