Workshop Details
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


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

The breakfasts, coffee breaks, and poster sessions will be held at the Palm.

There will be a welcome reception on Sunday night (5/30/2020) at the Phoenix Bean (next to the New Sheridan Restaurant and Hotel) from 6-8pm. A group hike is scheduled for Thursday afternoon.

Scientists are encouraged to bring family and/or friends. Telluride offers a number of options for children's camps (including Telluride Academy, Ah Haa School for the Arts, and Pinhead Institute). There is more information on childcare, camps, and family activities on TSRC's website at Please contact Cindy Fusting at for more information.
