QMCDB: A Living Database to Accelerate Worldwide Development & Usage of Quantum Monte Carlo Methods

Elif Ertekin

College: Engineering
Award year: 2015-2016

The fellows will design and implement a platform for open sharing and exchange of data, models, and results from quantum Monte Carlo calculations. This will accelerate the application of the relatively young QMC technique to real materials. The idea is to create an automated process for pipelining results from the fellows' Blue Waters simulations to the database, leveraging existing data formats.
