It is great to know that Walter is still active. My personal respect.
As we are aware, LDA_U plus phonons (and may be electron-phonon, as well) is
mostly implemented and we just are waiting when Matteo C. releases it .

Subject: [Pw_forum] Lunch Yesterday with Walter Kohn
To All Within the PWscf Community:
Yesterday I was honored to be invited to have lunch with Walter Kohn, one of
four in the company of Ted Geballe, Steve Kivelson and Mac Beasley of the
Applied Physics Faculty of Stanford. I believe the QE community would enjoy
knowing that Walter, at age 88, is very active and engaged, especially in
promoting wind and solar as the future energy scenario of the US (not one I
totally agree with, BTW). I first met Walter in the late 1970s when I was at
IBM and collaborating with Doug Scalapino on Monte Carlo simulations of low
dimensional fermion Hubbard-like models.
We did get a few minutes to discuss the future of DFT as well, and agree that
our community would benefit greatly from the extension of LDA+U, particularly to
electron-phonon interactions. Nicola? Mateo? Eyvaz?
