(HPCWire) TREX, the targeted Center of Excellence for the community of quantum chemistry funded by the European Commission. is organising a joint e-summer school in partnership with the International School for Advanced Studies (SISSA, Italy).
TREX aims to develop and apply high-performance software solutions for quantum mechanical simulations at the exascale via efficient and portable QMC libraries, and to feed a stronger QMC community of users.
The TREX e-Summer School represents a unique opportunity to provide a comprehensive introduction to QMC methods without any prerequisite. During this e-School, which will run as a virtual event from 12-16 July 2021, students will be using TurboRVB for QMC applications and tutorials. TurboRVB is a computational package for ab initio Quantum Monte Carlo (QMC) simulations of both molecular and bulk electronic systems. The code implements two types of well-established QMC algorithms: Variational Monte Carlo (VMC), and Diffusion Monte Carlo in its robust and efficient lattice regularized variant.
The TREX e-summer school offers an inclusive platform for all stakeholders to share results and innovations with TREX and the community of students, researchers, HPC actors, and the high-tech industry. Interested HPC experts and researchers are invited to submit their application by July the 5th and become an active member of the e- school.
