Ii. Research activities
Electron-electron interactions and physico-chemical properties of materials

Electron-electron interactions play a major role in the appearance and amplitude of physico-chemical phenomena observed in materials (Mott transition, magnetism, superconductivity, etc.). The development of new methods capable of describing these interactions in detail and their use to understand atypical behaviors remains a challenge for condensed matter physics and theoretical chemistry. Illustration: spherical representation of the variational landscape of a unitary transformation used for the development of "embedding" method (credit: Quentin Marécat's thesis).
