Within the last decades, quantum transport theory and density functional theory have become very important for predicting the electronic properties of new materials and future electronic devices.

We focus on the problem of improving quantum transport algorithms for large quasi-1D systems which are enormously time-consuming today. We combine the density functional tight binding (DFTB) approach with the recursive Green’s function formalism (RGF), which is very effective for such systems. First, we show how to improve the RGF for the case of randomly distributed real defects. For this, we use the steps of the renormalization decimation algorithm (RDA), which is part of the electrode calculation. Second, we show how to improve the calculation of the surface Green’s functions of electrodes which have a long unit cell. Here, we employ the decimation technique to reduce the dimensionality of the periodic Hamiltonian matrix, leading to effective matrices, which are treated by the RDA. Finally, we apply these algorithms to carbon nanotubes and present our results.
