Entanglement renormalization: a new route to strongly correlated fermions and novel states of matter in two dimensions (2010–2012)

Abstract:
This Discovery Project aims to answer longstanding questions in the field of condensed matter physics. A series of fundamental problems in our understanding of quantum states of matter, including the mechanisms that produce high-temperature superconductivity or the transition between a Mott insulator and a metal will be addressed. These problems have remained open for decades, but a definitive answer is now at reach thanks to a breakthrough numerical approach to strongly correlated fermions in two dimensions recently developed at the University of Queensland in collaboration with prestigious international collaborators.
