In this project, researchers use state of the art fermion quantum Monte Carlo methods to understand emergent collective phenomena in correlated electron system. The scientists define and study theoretical models where topology emerges and leads to novel particles at quantum critical points. The flexibility of their approach also makes it possible to study the physics of magnetic moments in a metallic environment. This could, for instance, enable theoretical experiments for understanding magnetic adatoms on metallic surfaces. In this report, a succinct account of the ALF (Algorithms, Lattice, Fermions) program package, which was developed by the scientists, as well as a summary of selected research projects is provided.
