Nearly all DFT calculations for solids are made assuming the Born-Opperheimer approximation is valid. Let us examine this approximation:
The Born-Oppenheimer approximation is — as the name tells — an approximation. When you look at its derivation, can you imagine situations where the Born-Oppenheimer approximation is not valid? Share those with us in the forum:
