Many Body Physics GroupThe Many Body Physics Group's research concentrates on condensed matter theory. In particular, we investigate equilibrium and nonequilibrium properties of systems with strong correlations, such as hightemperature superconducting cuprates and pnictides, manganates, oxide heterostructures, nanostructured devices, as well as "artificial" crystals obtained by ultracold atoms in optical lattices. We employ a variety of methods, ranging from fully abinitio density functional calculations, to mixed DFT+many body approaches such as dynamical meanfield theory or the clusterembedding methods, to Matrix Product State techniques for model Hamiltonians. We also work on the development of new algorithms for the numerical simulation of correlated electron systems. Here is a list of our current research topics:
Our research is supported by several projects funded by the Austrian Science Fund (FWF):
Subdivision: Charge Transport in SolidsWe investigate the dynamics of charge carrier transport in solids with particular focus on inorganic and organic semiconducting materials and devices. Abteilung für Mathematische und Angewandte Theoretische Physik
