Two-dimensional materials can have unique electronic and magnetic properties that make them attractive in researching new materials. Currently we have several new 2D compounds among which the most studied are graphene, phosphorene, silicene, germanene and MoS2. There is in the scientific community the prospect that other stable two-dimensional materials can still be discovered, always seeking a specific property that overlaps the bulk that are known. One of the great challenges of this area is to describe how stable these materials are. The present project intends to develop a study on the thermodynamic stability of these materials. However, in addition to canonical work, the student should work deep in interactions with Big-Data's international initiatives in materials and focusing on their properties when interacting in multilayers.
