About me and this webpage:

My name is Martin Žonda and I am a theoretical physicist working at the Department of Condensed Matter physic of the Charles University in Prague.

I am currently participating in several projects. The ones that occupy most of my attention deal with the quantum dot attached to superconducting leads, with classical stochastic dynamics, and with vibrational effects in the transport through nanosystems. Nevertheless, I am also involved in a project focused on the supperdiffusive transport in magnetic multilayers, in analyzing some STM experiments, and other smaller projects.

My previous research activities included various problems of strongly correlated systems with the emphasis on the different phase transitions in Hubbard like models.

My most favorite leisure time activities are hiking, puzzlehunting, reading, and watching old sci-fi series.

Even though the prime goal of this webpage is to introduce my work and to have a storage room for officialities you may also find here some tips and tricks as well as leisure time reading.

What drew my attention

Inchworm Monte Carlo is a novel method that effectively suppress dynamical sign problem in real-time evolution of quantum many-body problems. It iteratively reuse information obtained in previous Monte Carlo steps. For various problems it seem to be capable to reach times of a magnitude longer than other real-time Monte Carlo methods. Moreover, it is usable as an impurity solver in DMFT calculations. paper by P. Hänggi et al
