HP3 - Advanced Quantum Simulations

In Horizontal Project 3, Advanced Quantum Simulations, we develop and implement the novel theories and algorithms that are needed for systems with a complex electronic structure. These are often strongly correlated systems with novel and interesting quantum states that are of interest, for example, in the field of quantum information and computing, or systems where standard density functional theory approaches fail qualitatively or quantitatively. New methods that are being developed include continuous time quantum Monte Carlo (QMC), self-consistent GW+DMFT, and density functionals based on non-local correlations (MP2 and random phase approximation (RPA)) or orbital densities.
