September 25, 2013. Rodos Palace Hotel, Room 8.
The session timetable with abstracts is here.

This is the first international session devoted to the computational and theoretical analysis of grid-based methods which aims to consolidate the current state of the art, report new developments, and discuss open questions in the treatment of large quantum many-body systems. To express interest in this session and reserve a slot for your presentation, please send a tentative title of your talk with a list of authors and affiliations to the organiser.

Grid-based wavefunction methods in quantum many-body theory play a key role in our understanding of the nature of nature. Applying grid-based methods to the many-body problem poses a number of challenges in applied mathematics and theoretical physics. These are for instance related to the choice of basis functions, the representation of the grid, the approximations required to obtain self-consistency, and the number of eigenspectrum problems that need to be solved in the process. The main goal of this meeting is to bring together scientists engaged in fundamental and applied aspects of grid-based methods in quantum mechanics and/or in the analysis of numerical methods of solving an associated large-scale eigenspectrum problem. The session aims to consolidate the current state of the art and discuss new developments from a range of disciplines that contribute to this field of scientific research.

The key topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

The involvement of scientific researchers involved in the development of mathematical basics as well as those involved in applied computational and theoretical applications are invited to consider submitting a short paper.


Plenary lectures provide an opportunity for meeting attendees to hear from renowned speakers who have a passion for science and we are honoured to announce that this session's pleanary lecture will be:
