Quasi-two-dimensional organics, Hubbard ladders, and dynamic stability

This presentation is a summary of several projects we have been working on during the past few years. Our work covers electronic structure calculations of selected organic materials, searches for Dirac and Weyl materials as well as many-body physics of small clusters. In addition, recent developments in time crystal ideas are being examined at the many-body level. Our main interests are focused on several active areas in condensed matter physics such as topological materials, phase separation in small Hubbard clusters, unconventional superconductivity such as odd-frequency or photo-molecular high temperature superconductivity, frustrated magnetic systems such as quantum spin liquids and transport properties in two-dimensional systems. In addition, there is an ongoing effort on probing some fundamental aspects of quantum mechanics.
