SummAry of our research
An increasingly important part of chemistry, solid-state physics, and materials science takes place at the computer, allowing for new understanding, a reduction of experimental trial-and-error procedures, and energy and money savings. This requires highly accurate reproduction of phenomena at different scales. The quantum scale (electrons) is by far the most challenging but also the most crucial in many cases (for example, the breaking and making of chemical bonds is a quantum phenomenon). The research group Quantum Matter in Chemistry and Physics attack some of the open fundamental problems at the quantum scale, working in an interdisciplinary environment at the interface between Chemistry, Physics, and Mathematics. Current projects span from fundamental formalism to the development and testing of new approximations inspired to these rigorous results.
