# Phonons with FHI-aims and FHI-vibes

The tutorial is prepared by Nikita Rybin, Florian Knoop, and Christian Carbogno

This tutorial is about phonons and basics of the electron-phonon coupling. For most exercises, we will use the FHI-vibes -- a Python package for calculating, analyzing, and understanding the vibrational properties of solids from first principles.

It is build on the top of the atomic-simulation environment (ASE) and utilizes Phonopy  functionality for the vibrational analysis of periodic systems, and FHI-aims as the DFT calculator.
