Professor of Chemistry
The Mazziotti Group studies many-particle quantum mechanics with applications to chemistry and condensed matter physics. The computational complexity of traditional many-particle quantum mechanics scales exponentially according to the number of particles. We are developing new approaches to many-particle quantum mechanics based on reduced density matrices that capture strong electron correlations at a computational cost that adjusts polynomially with the number N of particles.
