Development of finite-temperature quantum dynamical simulation for charge-spin-orbital entangled systems
Complex physical systems in which charge-spin-orbital entanglement is essential, such as 5d-orbital electron systems, have been actively studied theoretically and experimentally. The synergistic effects of nontrivial band topology and electron correlations give rise to novel physical phenomena in these systems. In this project, we develop a new numerical method for finite-temperature dynamics of the charge-spin-orbital-entangled system. We aim to open a new avenue for quantum functional materials by predicting the response to external fields, such as magnetic fields and pressure, and by designing thin-film structures while explaining experimental results for 5d-orbital electron systems.


I would like to express my deepest gratitude to the Inamori Research Grants. I am honored and, at the same time, humbled. This project aims to develop methods for areas that are computationally infeasible with existing approaches. Although this is a rather challenging research subject, I will strive to contribute to developing a new research field in condensed matter physics.
