An important goal of the Action is to establish collaboration opportunities among the WGs as a way to develop a multiscale formalism by coupling methods of the different WGs. Multidisciplinary collaboration to solve selected cases will make possible to get progress in the field and expand the successful developments to more universal formalisms with a broader scope of application.
This COST Action research network is organized in the following 5 Working Groups (WG):
WG 1 – Experimental
Leader: Zoltán Juhász
Co-leader: Klaus Sokolowski-Tinten
Description: Transversal activities on empirical methods to induce and characterize electronic excitation effects on solids, liquids, gases, plasmas and biological matter.
WG 2 – Electronic excitation
Leader: Davide Sangalli
Co-leader: Myrta Grüning
Description: Typically, quantum methods to simulate the deposition of energy on the electronic system and the early stages of evolution.
WG 3 – Electron-lattice coupling
Leader: Stephen Fahy
Co-leader: Samuel Murphy
Description: Methods to take into account energy transfer to atoms, e.g., electron-phonon coupling formalisms in condensed matter.
WG 4 – Macroscopic aspects
Leader: Flyura Djurabekova
Co-leader: Mª Teresa Flores-Arias
Description: Methods to study long-term effects, such as hydrodynamics methods to study plasmas or heat equation to study heat dissipation.
WG 5 – Training, outreach, dissemination and technology transfer
Leader: Andrey Solov’yov
Co-leader: Philippe Zeitoun
Description: Transversal WG to extend the Action to young researchers, general public, related scientific communities or industry.
