The aim of this project is to use insights from exactly solvable models in order to improve the accuracy of quantum Monte Carlo methods for the modelling of correlated quantum systems such as ultracold atomic gases, nuclear matter and non-conventional superconductors. This will lead to a more precise understanding of the quantum correlations that exist in such systems and will allow to extend these insights to nuclear matter, neutron-rich atomic nuclei or neutron stars. The project also aims to clarify the relation between these systems and recent experiments on ultracold atomic gases. Through the development of new numerical simulation techniques the project will have considerable impact on the fields of nanotechnology (high-Tc superconductors, carbon nanotubes), quantum computing, nuclear waste transmutation and nuclear energy production.
