DESCRIPTION:The 2024 School on Numerical Simulation of Quantum Many-Body S
ystems will be held in central department of Physics\, Tribhuvan Universit
y\, Kathmandu\, Nepal from 25/07/2024 to 31/07/2024.\nThe school aims to t
rain Masters level physics students in Nepal in advanced numerical methods
in quantum many-body physics. A 100 percent attendance is mandatory to su
ccessfully complete the school\, participants successfully completing the
school will receive ICTP-PWF certificate at the end of the school.\nOur go
al is to train students to employ computational methods such as Exact Diag
onalization and Tensor Network algorithms through a compact course compris
ed of both theory and hands-on lectures.\nIn parallel\, this course will a
lso teach students to write efficient scientific codes to solve problems r
elated to many-body physics. The course comprises of both chalkboard lectu
res and hands-on sessions.\nOn successfully completing the school particip
ant are will gain the following skills:\n- Master the basics concepts of q
uantum spin chains: spin-1/2 (a.k.a. qubits)\, Hilbert space\, quantum man
y-body wave function and its representation\, Pauli operators\, spin chain
hamil-tonian\, commonly used spin chain models (transverse field Ising mo
del\, Heisenberg model\, XXZ model\, etc)\;\n- Ability to perform exact di
agonalization of short range spin-1/2 hamiltonian with basic symmetries\,
like particle number conservation and translation invariance\;\n- Understa
nd the fundamental aspects of tensors network techniques: representation o
f the wave function of one dimensional spin system as Matrix Product State
s (MPS)\, operators as Matrix Product Operators (MPO)\, using these repres
entations in basic algorithms\, as for instance Density Matrix Renormaliza
tion Group (DMRG) and Time Evolving Block Decimation (TEBD)\;\n- Ability t
o write efficient codes for to solve scientific problems.The call for appl
ications is currently open here.Organizers\nProject Coordinator : Nishan R
