#### Condensed Matter Seminar, Garnet Chan, Numerical approaches to correlated electrons"

I will describe current research in our group to develop numerical methods for correlated electrons in systems of interest to chemistry and physics. I will survey a wide variety of techniques studied in our research, some of which are unique to our group, including: DMRG and tensor networks, dynamical mean-field theory and density matrix embedding, coupled cluster theory, and variational Monte Carlo. I will draw examples from applications to problems ranging from realistic chemical systems, such as active sites in biological enzymes, to problems of frustrated magnetism and the phase diagram of the Hubbard model. My hope is that as a new member of the Princeton community, this talk will provide an avenue to open up scholarly discussion and collaboration.
