COMPUTATIONAL MATERIALS SCIENCE - Group of Karsten Held

Our research focuses on materials and models with strong electronic correlations. These correlations give rise to fascinating physics such as unconventional superconductivity and quantum critical points. At the same time, electronic correlations pose a particular challenge to the theoretical description. At the scientific frontier, we hence develop new and better computational and quantum field theoretical methods such as LDA+DMFT, GW+DMFT or the dynamical vertex approximation. We apply these for a better understanding of physical phenomena in f-electron systems, oxide heterostructures and nanostructures.
