Topological quantum phenomena and breakthroughs in time-resolved spectroscopy pose a new challenge for many-body theory: Spatio-temporal electronic correlations often strongly impact topological and dynamical material properties but at the same time hinder an unambiguous interpretation of experiments, let alone a reliable quantitative prediction of material properties.
The research unit QUAST (QUAntitative Spatio-Temporal model-building for correlated electronic matter) aims at addressing this challenge by a coordinated effort in theoretical method development and concerted experiments: Our central goal is to develop an electronic structure theory accounting for spatio-temporal electronic correlations to ultimately explain and quantitatively model topological and dynamical phenomena in correlated materials.
