Quantum embedding project

Funding: Lab of Excellence (LABEX), Chemistry of Complex Systems, University of Strasbourg.

Period: 2019-2022.

Title: Towards a systematically improvable density matrix functional embedding theory for strongly correlated electronic systems.

People involved: Emmanuel Fromager (project leader), Matthieu Saubanère, Sajanthan Sekaran (PhD student).

Summary of the project: The present LABEX project aims at deriving and implementing a general (i.e., applicable to both model and quantum chemical Hamiltonians) and formally exact density matrix functional embedding theory . Our key ingredient will be the unitary Householder transformation which is applied to the (one-electron reduced) density matrix. In parallel, we develop new density-functional embedding theories within the recently derived density functional theory for N-centered ensembles [Phys. Rev. A 98, 022513 (2018); Int. J. Quantum Chem. e26190 (2020)].
