4th Les Houches School in Computational Physics : From Quantum Gazes to Strongly Correlated Systems

The quantitative description of degenerate and strongly correlated quantum many-body systems is the main subject of the 2014 school on computational physics. The courses will introduce the state-of-the- art approaches, e.g. quantum Monte Carlo, dynamical mean-field, and density matrix renormalization group methods. These courses will focus on the physics of ultracold atomic gases, which is particularly suited for a pedagogical introduction, as experiments directly realize fundamental models of quantum many-body theory and enable quantitative comparisons in correlation-dominated regimes. More recent developments and present trends at the interface with other condensed matter systems will be exposed in short lectures and seminars.

Organisers :

  • M. Holzmann (CNRS)
  • T. Roscilde (ENS, Lyon)
  • J.-L. Barrat (UJF, ILL, Grenoble)

The School will focus on the quantitative description of degerate quantum gases and strongly correlated systems using state-of-the-art computational methods. It is organized over 2 weeks, and it comprises several mini-courses (4 hours each + 2 hours of tutorial) and topical seminars. It is specifically targeted to PhD students, postdoctoral fellows, and young researchers in the field of quantum many-body theory.
