Quantum matter group
Centre de physique Théorique
In the recent years quantum simulation has established itself at the interface of experiments and theory. Hence most of the recent dramatic advances on quantum simulations own much to parallel experimental and theoretical developments. In the group, we work along three main lines:
__|Propose new protocoles for quantum simulation;
__|Elaborate relevant models to interprete and understand simulation results;
__|Develop new theoretical approaches for correlated quantum systems.
In this view, we develop both analytical approaches (field theories, mean field approximation, bosonization, …) and numerical techniques (nonlinear Schrödinger equation, path integral quantum Monte Carlo, variational Monte Carlo, exact diagonalization, static and dynamics DMRG, …).
The research themes of the group are :
- Metal-insulator transitions in highly correlated ultra-low atom systems;
- The non-equilibrium dynamics of highly correlated quantum systems.
- Correlated disordered quantum systems, from Anderson localization to N-body localization;
