Abstract: The Computational Framework for Unbiased Studies of Correlated Electron Systems (CompFUSE) SciDAC-4 project seeks to understand, predict, and ultimately control the effects of correlations in quantum materials by developing a computational framework for controlled and unbiased studies of strongly interacting electron systems.  In this talk, I will discuss some of the applied math and computational challenges that need to be overcome in order to design efficient algorithms and codes that can take advantage of leadership-class computing architectures to solve  some of the most challenging problems in condensed matter physics.

Speaker’s Bio:  Thomas A. Maier is a distinguished research staff member in the computational materials science group at Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL) and a Joint Faculty Associate Professor in the Department of Physics and Astronomy at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville. He joined ORNL in 2003 as a Wigner Fellow, following a 2-year postdoctoral fellowship at the University of Cincinnati. He received his Masters in Physics in 1997 and Ph.D. in Physics in 2001 from the University of Regensburg, Germany. His primary scientific interests are numerical studies of strongly correlated electron systems focused on problems in superconductivity and magnetism. Dr. Maier is a Fellow of the American Physical Society and has been the recipient of the W.C. Röntgen prize in 2001, the Wigner Fellowship of ORNL in 2003 and the ACM Gordon Bell award in 2008.
