Workshop Details
VIRTUAL WORKSHOP – Low-scaling and Unconventional Electronic Structure Techniques Conference (LUEST) 2020
06/01/2020 - 06/05/2020
Meeting Description:

This workshop will examine off-the-beaten path approaches to electronic structure theory, particularly low-scaling and unconventional methods. Format: Invited lectures and poster presenters. Anyone attending, who is not an invited speaker, is expected to present a poster.

Themes for the LUEST 2020 workshop:
I. Unconventional electronic structure methods
Novel methods particularly for strong correlation
-Exact/extremely accurate solutions to the Schrodinger equation
-Low scaling techniques and accurate calculations on very large systems
-Density Matrix Renormalization Group and Tensor Networks
-Reduced Density Matrix methods
-Quantum Monte Carlo and Stochastic Approaches
-Unconventional Density Functionals
-Density Matrix Functional Theory
-Non-Gaussian basis sets (for instance numerical, finite element)

II. Bridging the gap between the physics and chemistry community
-Dynamical Mean Field Theory
-Random Phase Approximation for ground state correlations
-The GW method
-The Bethe-Salpeter equation
-COHSEX and other Green's Function models


STUDENT REGISTRATION ($50) via this link (need to write the name of the workshop in the workshop field):

Registration is open to all those interested, limited to 60 participants including invited speakers. Attendants not speaking are encouraged to present a poster.

The Virtual Workshop fee of $200 also allows for complimentary access to the Virtual Live Lecture Series.
