Nonequilibrium kinetics and dynamics

THE KUBIS GROUP @ PURDUE UNIVERSITY

Developing, implementing and expanding the nonequilibrium Green's function method to all sorts of nonequilibrium systems

Research projects

UNLOCKING THE POWER OF QUANTUM TRANSPORT METHODS

Self-disinfecting surfaces

HIGH PERFORMANCE COMPUTING

Nonequilibrium Green's function calculations create immense numerical load. Its implementation has to scale to the size of world-largest supercomputers.

Team:

Xinchen Guo

NEW RECURSIVE GREEN'S FUNCTION METHODS

Atomically resolved Green's functions have to be solved within the RGF method. RGF is expanded to support nonlocal scattering.

LOW RANK APPROXIMATIONS IN QUANTUM TRANSPORT

The numerical load of the nonequilibrium Green's function method can be dramatically reduced with low rank approximations. When chosen carefully, the predictive power of NEGF is preserved.
