Adaptive band structure analyzer for Kwant leads
kwantSpectrum is an extension to Kwant that adaptively analyzes band structures of infinite quasi-1d systems. The bandstructure is approximated to an arbitrary precision by piecewise cubic polynomials. Functionality to deal with special points, intervals, and the periodic nature of the spectrum is provided.
