Research

Main content

From the physics of correlated electrons and quantum devices to the dynamics of ecosystems. We employ large-scale computational resources to push the boundary of knowledge.

Research projects

The simulational physics group is active in many research fields. Projects include the study of theoretical models for quantum magnetism and condensed matter physics, as well as simulation of quantum devices such as quantum simulators. Recently we started working on topic outside quantum physics as computational ecology and classical optimization problems.

Large-scale simulations are supported by the powerful research infrastructure available in the group. We have access to state-of-the-art computational clusters and supercomputers delivering us the newest technologies. Software development in the group is mostly open source, such that we enable other scientist to profit from our expertise.
