Research Highlight: Capogrosso-Sansone Group
Our research group studies strongly correlated many-body systems by means of large-scale quantum Monte Carlo simulations. Strong correlations are responsible for physical phenomena and properties which hold a great potential in revolutionizing technological applications. Understanding these systems is one of the major challenges facing physicists and a key issue in the community. In our group, we investigate novel exotic quantum states of matter realizable in Atomic-Molecular-Optical experimental setups by means of unbiased numerical techniques. Please do not hesitate to contact Professor Barbara Capogrosso-Sansone for more information.
