Calculating Resonances Using a Complex Absorbing Potential
Ranking is calculated from a formula comprised of user reviews and usage data. Learn more ›
13 Mar 2008 | Online Presentations | Contributor(s): Robin Santra
The Siegert (or Gamow) wave function associated with a resonance state is exponentially divergent at large distances from the scattering target. A complex absorbing potential (CAP) provides a …
Dynamics on the Nanoscale: Time-domain ab initio studies of quantum dots, carbon nanotubes and molecule-semiconductor interfaces
31 Jan 2008 | Online Presentations | Contributor(s): Oleg Prezhdo
Device miniaturization requires an understanding of the dynamical response of materials on the nanometer scale. A great deal of experimental and theoretical work has been devoted to characterizing …
The basics of quantum Monte Carlo
15 Jun 2007 | Online Presentations | Contributor(s): Lucas Wagner, Jeffrey C Grossman, Jeffrey B. Neaton
Quantum Monte Carlo is a highly accurate method to approximately solve the Schrodinger equation. I explain quantum Monte Carlo in a way that should be accessible to someone who is somewhat familiar …
Renormalization Group Theories of Strongly Interacting Electronic Structure
20 Apr 2007 | Online Presentations | Contributor(s): Garnet Chan, NCN SLC@Northwestern
Our work is in the area of the electronic structure and dynamics of complex processes. We engage in developing new and more powerful theoretical techniques which enable us to describe strong …
