Team co-leaders: Prof. Maciej Maśka i Prof. Adam Rycerz


The project focused on exploring the influence of interparticle correlations on quantum states and phase transitions in highly correlated electronic systems. Additionally, the project involved studying the properties of graphene systems and atoms in optical networks. We consider the main achievements of the project to be as follows:

(i) The development of an original theoretical model, known as the EDABI method, for describing correlated states in nanoscale systems.
(ii) The advancement of the theory of evaporation in high-temperature superconductors and heavy-fermion systems, with comparisons to experimental results.
(iii) The successful mentoring of 5 Ph.D. candidates in physical sciences (plus two theses currently in progress).
(iv) The publication of a scientific monograph, with an English version currently in preparation for Springer Science.

All team members from the project have found employment opportunities after the conclusion of the grant, and all completed doctoral dissertations have received recognition and distinction.
