The Simons Collaboration on the Many Electron Problem will hold its second annual summer school June 8-12 at the Simons Center for Geometry and Physics at Stony Brook University. 56 collaboration members and guests will participate. Organized by collaboration scientist Mark van Schilfgaarde, the school will focus on modern electronic structure methods and their many-body extensions, and will also feature lectures on tensor network methods by collaboration scientist Guifre Vidal and (for pre-registered collaboration members and guests only) a day at Brookhaven National Laboratory. Junior members of the collaboration will present their recent work.
