2024 - Computational Quantum Materials


Centre de Villégiature Jouvence - Québec - CANADA

The International Summer School on Computational Quantum Materials 2024 is open to PhD students and young researchers; This School will focus on computational tools for both models and ab-initio methods that deal with so-called "quantum materials" whose spectacular properties range from high-temperature superconductors to large thermopower materials. These properties are consequences of the non-trivial quantum mechanical nature of electrons and of their interactions.

The merging of methods for models of strongly correlated quantum materials with ab-initio methods now allows one to make predictions for materials with d and f electrons that were unimaginable until recently. A good part of the School will be devoted to these.

The power of quantum mechanics as a description of nature has never been clearer. But it remains a formidable challenge to solve the equations that are necessary to understand collective electronic properties of complex solids. Conceptual advances, new algorithms and the power of modern computers have allowed numerical methods to rank amongst new theoretical frameworks that are indispensable for this purpose.

Extensive hands-on training on freely available programs, ABINIT, TRIQS and a few others such as  COMSCOPE, Wannier90, Z2pack and NESSI will be an integral part of the School.

Lectures will be pedagogical, presented in a logical sequence and some review material will make sure students are on the same page.
