Objectives
Our research group works in the development and study of first-principles methods to study condensed matter, with special attention to the relevance of quantum effects and complexity. In the limit of extreme quantum matter we work and develop quantum Monte Carlo methods as diffusion Monte Carlo and path integral Monte Carlo. With them, we study from a microscopic approach, quantum effects such as the Bose-Einstein condensation and superfluidity of cold Bose and Fermi gases and more interacting quantum liquids and solids. In physico-chemical systems we work with Molecular Dynamics with quantum corrections to study the behavior of aqueous systems, biomembranes and polymers. Complexity in different systems is studied mainly using network theory dependent on time and its relation to dynamical processes.
