Advanced Computational Methods for Strongly Correlated Quantum Systems

23.02.2015  -  26.02.2015

The scope of the conference reflects the interdisciplinary progress in computer simulations of strongly correlated quantum matter: Concepts in quantum information have lead to the development of powerful novel algorithms for condensed-matter systems. The discovery of graphene and topological insulators has spurred a resurgence in the application of the Dirac equation in solid-state physics, revitalizing an area of common interest in the condensed matter and lattice-gauge-theory communities. Finally, advances in high-performance computing are reshaping the way computers will be used for research in the future. The aim of the conference is to bring together researchers from these disparate fields in order to foster synergies, to stimulate further progress, and to identify promising directions for future research.
