As part of the EU Horizon 2020 programme, Simen Kvaal (PhD) was awarded an ERC Starting Grant for the proposal BIVAQUM. The project started April 2015 and will last for 5 years. The topic is method development for computational chemistry, and the project unifies mathematical analysis, chemistry, and theoretical physics.

A new publication!

A. Laestadius and S. Kvaal has analyzed the extended coupled-cluster method using the bivariational principle. It is the first building block in the general analysis of the bivariational principle.
