Summer School "New Trends in Computational Approaches for Many-Body Systems"
28.05.2012 - 08.06.2012
DESCRIPTION: Approaches based on both model Hamiltonians and ab initio
methods will be treated, including: Projected Entangled States and
Multi-scale Entanglement Renormalization Ansatz, Worm algorithms, Density
Matrix Renormalization Group, Dynamical Mean-Field Theory and Quantum
Cluster Methods. Many numerical methods to be discussed in this School are
still in development, or so recent that one may expect dramatic improvements
and breakthroughs in the near future. These approaches are essential for
treating cold atoms, pnictides, heavy fermions, high-temperature
superconductivity, interfaces of complex oxides, etc; they are also of
central importance in quantum information theory.
TRAINING ASPECTS: Hands-on training on Abinit (http://www.abinit.org/ ) and
ALPS ( http://alps.comp-phys.org/ ) codes will be an integral part of the
Universite de Sherbrooke, Quebec, Canada
