Departament de Física (UPC)

Facultat de Informàtica (FIB)

  • Barcelona Quantum Monte Carlo Group

Our goal is the study of quantum fluids and solids using an ab initio approach based on Quantum Monte Carlo methods. We work on the development of new algortithms for simulation of fully quantum systems and apply these methods to a variety of systems, ranging from dilute cold Bose and Fermi gases to more strongly correlated systems, such as Helium and molecular Hydrogen.
