Quantum Simulations for Materials Research

International experts test the reliability of quantum physics software

Geneva/Jülich, 29 March 2016 – To what extent do the results of calculations match when they are carried out by different researchers using different software? This is what scientists from Jülich together with colleagues from more than 30 universities and institutes have investigated for quantum simulations of materials properties. The experts showed that new program generations delivered equally precise results – but this was not always true for older software versions. The researchers published their study last Friday in Science.
