Computational Quantum Materials

Erik S. Sørensen


My research is focused on quantum condensed matter theory and computational physics. In general, I work in the area of strongly correlated systems, often on low-dimensional models of frustrated magnets and electronic and superconducting systems. In order to understand these materials we sometimes exploit tools from quantum information and the relations these concepts have to strongly correlated systems. I have a strong interest in computational physics and numerical methods in general (as well as in analytical techniques) and a considerable part of my research tends to use what one might call advanced numerical techniques such as tensor networks, density matrix renormalization group methods and quantum Monte Carlo. My group make extensive use of parallel computing facilities such as SHARCnet and the Digital Research Alliance of Canada (formerly Compute Canada).
