My research group and I are conducting
interdisciplinary research activities
at the intersection between advanced mathematical techniques,
parallel numerical algorithms, and computational nanosciences.
We aim at
addressing the fundamental problems of accuracy,
robustness and parallel scalability in largescale
firstprinciple electronic calculations
with applications ranging from quantum chemistry and material sciences, to solidstate electronics and nanotechnology.
The significant challenges posed by such
realistic quantum simulations applied to largescale atomistic systems, have motivated the development of
two new HPC algorithms and their implementation on parallel architectures: (i) the SPIKE banded system
solver, and (ii) the FEAST eigensolver.
