Explaining ultra-fast, infinitely small and highly unusual interactions
Attempting to explain the relationships among multiple interacting objects on the visible scale is relatively straightforward. For example, classical physical laws govern the interactions among the cue ball and the other balls (and the cue stick and the table itself) during a game of billiards. If you take that down to the quantum level and interactions between lots of different particles with photons, the theoretical foundations are under construction. Correlated electron systems such as those in condensed matter systems are gaining intense interest both experimentally and theoretically. The EU-funded FASTCORR project aims to provide a novel theoretical foundation and numerical methods facilitating interpretation of the growing amount of experimental data regarding light-matter interactions involving materials with correlated electrons.
