PLEASE NOTE: In this year, its first year, the school will be by invitation only and is not open to the public.
Organized by Andrew Millis
Dates: June 9 – 13, 2014
The Simons Collaboration on the Many Electron Problem brings together scientists focused on developing new ways to solve the quantum mechanical equations governing the collective electronic properties of molecules and materials important in chemistry, physics and everyday life. The First Annual Summer School will help train Collaboration students and postdocs in the ideas and techniques needed in this research. It will feature lectures by Collaboration scientists including the theory of many-particle interactions and its applications to physics, materials science and chemistry, advanced computational methods including Monte Carlo and density matrix renormalization group methods as well as an introduction to high performance computing and advanced topics including quantum embedding methods, tensor network theory, diagrammatic Monte Carlo and modern electronic structure theory.
