26-10-2014: The poster for advertising the school is now online.


The summer school is opened to PhD students, post-docs and researchers using or developing methods for electronic structure calculations. One of the motivation for organizing such a school is to stimulate discussions between chemists and physicists on the problem of electron correlation, in the spirit of the national research group (GDR) “Correl” (see

The following topics will be covered:

Second quantization, density-functional theory (DFT), time-dependent DFT (TD-DFT), Hartree-Fock (HF) and post-HF methods, multi-configurational methods, multi-reference perturbation theory, model Hamiltonians, response theory, basics in solid-state physics, Green functions, Quantum Monte Carlo (QMC), density matrix renormalization group (DMRG), Random Phase Approximation (RPA), GW method, Bethe-Salpeter equation, Dynamical Mean Field Theory (DMFT).

Tutorials will be proposed every afternoon so that the participants can derive the key equations presented during the lectures. “Posters” and “evening discussion” sessions will also be organized.
