Theory developments

We actively work to the dvancement of ab initio methods for electronic structure theory.

Current developments are related to the extension of the polarizable continuum model towards non-trivally shaped environments (layered substrates, metallic nanoparticle and tips).

We also devise non-perturbative methods based on real-time time-dependent density-functional theory to treat optical nonlinearities in molecules.

We contributed to the development of a unified all-electron many-body formalism for ab initio  optical and core spectroscopy.
