Seminars 2016

seminars 2015



On an irregular basis various Special Seminars take place at the MPQ. The seminars are organized by scientists of our divisions, administration or staff representatives.

The location will be announced with the event.


Non-linear response in extended systems: a real-time approach (Dr. C. Attaccalite)

I will present a new formalism to study linear and non-linear response in extended systems. Our approach is based on real-time solution of an effective Schrödinger equation. [more]

A Projector Quantum Monte Carlo Method for non-linear wavefunctions (L. Schwarz)

The projected imaginary time evolution of Full Configuration Inter-action Quantum Monte Carlo (FCIQMC) can be reformulated in terms of a Lagrangian minimization which naturally admits polynomial complex wavefunction parameterizatons, thereby circumventing the exponential scaling of the FCIQMC approach. [more]

Computational power of symmetry-protected topological phases (D. Stephen)

In many-body physics, many essential properties of a quantum state are determined by the phase of matter in which it resides. Recent years have witnessed tremendous progress in the discovery and classification of quantum phases, and it is thus pertinent to ask: what can a phase of matter be used for? [more]

Quantum steerability as a nesting problem (Dr. C. Nguyen)

We are to discuss quantum steerability, which was recently discovered as the third type of quantum nonlocality besides quantum nonseparability and Bell nonlocality. [more]

Freewheeling across laser’s wonderland: from mid-infrared filaments to neurophotonics (Prof. A. Zheltikov)

With empowering inspiration from multidisciplinary activities of the MPQ/MAP/CALA constellation, this talk will undertake an adventure of a freewheeling tour over wildly different landscapes of laser’s wonderland. [more]
