Workshop Details
Stochastic Methods in Electronic Structure Theory
06/05/2023 - 06/09/2023
Meeting Description:

The past decade has witnessed a rapid growth in the application of stochastic electronic structure methods to molecular and periodic systems. This includes methods ranging from diffusion Monte Carlo (DMC) where sampling is done in real space to methods such as AFQMC and various stochastic CI and stochastic coupled cluster methods where sampling is done in the space of Slater determinants. In addition, novel stochastic DFT, MP2, and Greens’ function methods have been introduced. Major advantages of stochastic methods compared to non-stochastic high level electronic structure methods include improved scaling with system size and improved performance when running over large numbers of CPU (or GPU) cores. In addition, several stochastic electronic structure methods are well suited for treating strongly correlated systems. There has also been considerable progress in the incorporation of machine learning algorithms, the treatment of electronically excited states, and the inclusion of finite temperature effects in quantum Monte Carlo methods This workshop will address recent developments in the area of stochastic electronic structure methods.


FYI: While the other lodging options have an early bird deadline of February 15th, the Avant Stay condos have an early bird deadline of February 1.

Telluride Science is about expanding the frontiers of science, exploring new ideas, and building collaborations. The workshop schedule will allow for substantial unstructured time for participants to talk and think. All participants are expected to stay for the entire duration of the workshop.

Scientists are encouraged to consider bringing family or friends. Telluride offers a number of options for children's camps (including Telluride Academy, Aha School for the Arts, and Pinhead Institute). There is more information on childcare, camps, and family activities on Telluride Science's website. Feel free to contact Telluride Science's staff to help with any planning and/or coordinating care.
