This document will provide a hands-on tutorials demonstrating the ADF-GUI, BAND-GUI and so on. All of these (ADF-GUI, BAND-GUI, DFTB-GUI, ReaxFF-GUI and so on) are very similar and share a lot of options. So collectively these will just be called the GUI.
The first five tutorials provide an overview over all GUI modules, using ADF as computational engine. If you are new to the GUI, we advise you to study the tutorials in the order presented.
The advanced ADF-GUI tutorials focus on particular features of the ADF-GUI, or on some particular application.
Next there are some specialized tutorials that show you how to use the GUI with BAND, DFTB, MOPAC or ReaxFF.
We estimate that you will need about half an hour for each part of the tutorial, for reading and performing the hands-on activities. Typically the calculations should give results that are very close to the results shown in the tutorials. However, in some cases minor changes may occur depending on hardware and software versions.
Many tutorials are also available as videos. The current videos are actually the tutorial videos for ADF2009, so there will be differences with the current tutorials.
