These four areas well represent the numerous theoretical / computational activities of the Theory and Simulation laboratory. These activities cover a wide spectrum of dynamics simulations and characterization of various types of phenomena and materials. The various expertises of the laboratory components range from the use of advanced theories to the development of advanced numerical simulation codes. This variety allows the laboratory to study and predict the equilibrium and / or excited state properties of a system both in a steady-state and out of equilibrium state.
The laboratory's activities are thus on the border of the most advanced applications and theories as demonstrated by both the existing collaborations and the numerous publications.
The laboratory is also in constant contact with external collaborators and experimental groups, to which it offers calculation and simulation services, also with the support of European user infrastructures. Among these services, the Yambo project, which is today a scientific code known worldwide, entirely developed by the institute, with a decennial history of schools and development, should be mentioned.
