The understanding of superconducting mechanisms in high critical temperature (HTc) materials (such as copper oxides) remains one of the most challenging topics in condensed matter physics. Using Quantum Monte Carlo simulations we aim to study realistic materials in order to determine whether high-temperature superconducting properties can be quantitatively understood and therefore predicted within an ab-initio approach. The TurboRVB package developed at SISSA (Scuola Internazionale Superiore di Studi Avanzati di Trieste) allows approaching this problem with massively parallel simulations. The TurboRVB is well suited for the DEEP Architecture since the Cluster part can be exploited for the optimisation of the many-body wave function, letting the Booster perform the evolution of the Monte Carlo walkers. In this way calculations of HTc material properties unaffordable with today's supercomputers will be accessible.
These simulations are done by CINECA, Italy.
