This weekend I attended the MRMCD18 in Darmstadt, which is one of the many chaos events where a few hundred people interested in computer science, hacking, making, politics and society gather for a weekend of talks, coding and discussion. Having participated in this event regularly in the past few years …read more
Currently I am attending the Molecular Electronic Structure 2018 conference in Metz, an electronic-structure theory conference intended for researchers working on novel methodologies, such as explicit correlation, density matrix theory, stochastic approaches or on discretisation techniques going beyond Gaussian-type orbitals.
Especially the latter aspect fits well to the kind of …read more
From Monday till Wednesday this week I was invited to the computational mathematics research group of Prof. Dr. Benjamin Stamm at the RWTH Aachen University. In retrospect I am very thankful for the invitation, since the three days turned out to be filled with fruitful discussions, scientific exchange and brainstorming …read more
Last week I was invited to the Mathematical Research Institute Oberwolfach (Mathematisches Forschungsinstitut Oberwolfach) for a workshop about Mathematical Methods in Quantum Chemistry. I am really grateful to the organisers Eric Cancès, Gero Friesecke, Trygve Helgaker and Lin Lin for asking me to join this meeting as it turned out …read more
Last Thursday the PhDs of my graduate school gathered again for our self-organised mini conference, named Annual Colloquium. Having organised this event myself as well a couple of years back, I had rather mixed feelings this time, since I most likely not be around in Heidelberg for another AC.
For …read more
As mentioned in a previous post on this matter last month, from 2nd to 6th October, the IWR hosted the school Mathematical Methods for Quantum Chemistry, which I co-organised together with my supervisors Andreas Dreuw and Guido Kanschat as well as the head of my graduate school Michael Winckler.
From …read more
Yesterday I gave a talk at our annual group retreat at the Darmstädter Haus in Hirschegg, Kleinwalsertal. For this talk I expanded the slides from my lazy matrix talk in Kiel, incorporating a few of the more recent Coulomb-Sturmian results I obtained.
Most importantly I added a few slides to …read more
Thursday a week ago I gave a brief introductory talk in our Heidelberg Chaostreff about the Bohrium project. Especially after the HPC day at the Niels Bohr Institute during my recent visit to Copenhagen, I became rather enthusiastic about Bohrium and wanted to pass on some of my experiences.
The …read more
In the talk I presented some ideas how to incorporate property-based testing into test suites forread more
C++programs. The idea …
About two weeks ago, on Friday the 13th of March, I was invited back to the Chemistry Department at the University of Cambridge. As part of their Theoretical Chemistry Informal Seminar talk series I was asked to give a short talk (Abstract) about my current research. Needless to say that …read more
Last Thursday I gave a talk (in German) in our local Chaostreff in Heidelberg — the NoName e.V. The main topic was to introduce the various cryptographic algorithms used in modern cryptography and to give practical advice how to improve the default configuration even further. The talk mainly focuses on …read more
Last Monday and Tuesday this year's most important event of the HGS Mathcomp (my graduate school) took place — the Annual Colloquium. Being part of the organising committee we stepped into the footsteps of the previous ACs and planned it as a short two-day conference with graduate students presenting their project …read more
