A long time ago a student told me that I am a mascot of the chemistry olympiad. Since then I have graduated, made a post-doc, and after that returned to the olympiad business. It is very touching that the Estonian team named its mascot “Vlad”. Apparently, I am a mascot again.
A group of students and tutors from Paris 13 visited Chemicum. Aurélie and Chris on the left and David with sunglasses in the middle. Georgi (on the right) made a nice excursion. Next year two Erastus students from Paris 13 will be studying in Tartu!
At the evening of the best lecturers recongnition. My supervisor Karmen Lust receinved the award.

Assume that all the requirements are fulfilled:
- Python 2.7-3.5
- NumPy 1.6.1 or later (base N-dimensional array package)
- ASE 3.15.0 or later (atomic simulation environment)
- a C-compiler
- LibXC 2.0.1 or later
- BLAS and LAPACK libraries
Optional, but highly recommended:
- SciPy 0.7 or later (library for scientific computing, requirered for some features)
- an MPI library (required for parallel calculations)
- FFTW (for increased performance)
- BLACS and ScaLAPACK
svn co http://www.tddft.org/svn/libxc/trunk/ libxc
./configure --enable-shared --prefix=/home/USER/xc
make -j N
The LibXC compilation might not work, and GPAW would complain, so configure as follows:
./configure CFLAGS="-O2 -fPIC" --prefix=/home/USER/xc
After compiling LibXC add these lines to your
Let’s install ASE using pip, because it is easy.
pip install --upgrade --user ase
Get the GPAW source code and remove in
xc_mgga_x_tb09_set_params(self->functional, c);. Them compile GPAW with
python setup.py install --user. You might want to add the
.local/bin to the path.
Use either Python or Python3, and be consistent with that.
The official guideline also recommends adding these lines to your
Don’t forget to get setups. E.g. execute
gpaw install-data DIR. After that run the tests.
Season’s Greetings with all good wishes for the New Year!
Kaunist pühadeaega ja head uut aastat!
С Рождеством и Новым Годом!
Frohe Weihnachten und ein glückliches neues Jahr!
Thanks for the pleasant company.
A list of things to bring with you:
- Gloves, hat and scarf (the average temperature is −1.5°C)
- Waterproof boots or trekking boots (with a good grip in case there is ice)
- Layered clothing (like pullovers and cardigans, so that you can remove or add layers according to the weather and how fast you are moving)
- Swimming equipment (for SPA and sauna or why not doing some winter swimming?)
- Napkins for a runny nose
- A postcard to pin in the office 5072 where Vladislav works

Point 1. On the publishers portals, LaTeX looks old-fashioned. The compilation seemed romantic in the early students years, but currently it looks awful to me: LaTeX -> BibTeX -> LaTeX -> DVI -> PS -> PDF. ShareLaTeX is great, yet to submit a paper one has to return to the old-school compilation.
Point 2. Grammarly does not work with bare TeX even in ShareLaTeX. There is so much space for improvement, where publishers could significantly contribute. Do they?
Point 3. Vector figures are great. Why do publishers ask for eps? The encapsulated postscript is outdated. For instance, it does not support transparency and also gradients, to a certain extent.
