Computational Approaches to Quantum Critical Phenomena

July 17, 2006 – August 11, 2006

Location: ISSP, University of Tokyo, Japan


Study of novel behaviors of correlated systems is one of the most interesting research subjects in modern condensed matter physics. In order to identify various phases and clarify their properties, computational approaches are quite powerful, in particular, with the aid of analytic methods such as the field theory and the renormalization groups. The goal of the workshop and the symposium is to offer a place of intimate interactions among the researchers working in related areas and thereby generate new problems solutions and/or collaborations for future studies.

The whole meeting consists of the 4 week Workshop and 3 day Symposium. During the Workshop, one or two lectures by invited speakers will be held everyday by choosing a specific topic for every week.. At the symposium, the latest research results, both theoretical and experimental, will be presented. Anticipated topics of discussion include: (1) quantum critical phenomena in low dimensional systems, (2) randomness and quantum fluctuation, (3) computational techniques and methods (quantum Monte Carlo, DMRG, methods of extended statistical ensemble, etc), (4) BEC in magnetic systems.
