16th GAMM-Seminar Leipzig on

Numerical techniques for Schrödinger equations

February 3rd to 5th, 2000.

The GAMM Committee Efficient numerical methods for partial differential equations in cooperation with the Max-Planck-Institute for Mathematics in the Sciences organizes the annual GAMM-Seminar Leipzig.

  About the seminar
  An aim of the workshop is to present and discuss advanced numerical techniques for the approximate solution of the Schrödinger equation in quantum chemical applications. Quantum chemistry requires highly accurate solutions for different kinds of Schrödinger operators. These operators arise from physical models describing many-electron systems of atoms, molecules and solids on various levels of approximation. Depending on the specific form of the potential these models correspond to many-electron systems interacting either directly via two-particle interactions or indirectly by an effective mean field interaction. Strategies for the solution of these problems comprise perturbation theory, configuration interaction and Monte Carlo methods for the first case and methods for coupled systems of partial differential equations in the second case.
