Dynamical Mean-Field Approach
with Predictive Power for
Strongly Correlated Materials

Autumn School on Correlated Electrons:
DMFT at 25: Infinite Dimensions

15-19 September 2014, Forschungszentrum Jülich

Announcement: Poster and Flyer.


Dynamical mean-field theory (DMFT) has opened new perspectives for dealing with strong electronic correlations and the associated emergent phenomena. This successful method has exploited the experience previously gained with single-impurity models (e.g., the Anderson model) transferring it to many-body lattice problems. The basis for this breakthrough was the realization, 25 years ago, that diagrammatic perturbation theory greatly simplifies in the limit of infinite dimensions, so that the self-energy becomes local. Nowadays DMFT, combined with ab-initio density-functional techniques, is the state-of-the art approach for strongly correlated materials. In this school we will present how DMFT is applied to real systems. Lectures will cover the basics of the method, the LDA+DMFT approach, non-local extensions of DMFT, and impurity solvers. Lectures on photoemission spectroscopy, response functions, and time-dependent phenomena provide the necessary contact to experiments.

The goal of the school is to introduce advanced graduate students and up to the modern approaches to the realistic modeling of strongly-correlated systems.

General Information

Venue: The school will take place from 15 to 19 September 2014 at the Forschungszentrum Jülich, in the Lecture Hall of the Peter-Grünberg Institute, building 4.8, room 365.

Participation: The school is intended for advanced graduate or PhD students and postdocs in the field of electronic structure of materials.

Admission: Interested students should apply before May 31, 2014 through the registration form. Accepted applicants will be informed via e-mail two weeks after the deadline for applications.

Accommodation: Students can apply for financial support to cover accommodation costs. Participants supported by the school will be accommodated in the Aachen Youth Hostel. Funding for accommodations is limited.

ICAM Junior Travel Awards: Eligible candidates can apply for an ICAM Junior Travel Award. Funding is limited to about 10 students. For more information see the ICAM site and the registration form.

Transport: A shuttle bus will be operating in the mornings and evenings between the Youth Hostel in Aachen and the Forschungszentrum Jülich.

Hotels in Aachen and Jülich: Participants for whom no low-cost accommodation can be found or who wish to stay in a hotel may find hotels at these web-sites: Jülich and Aachen.
