|Outline of Final Research Achievements
Strongly correlated electron systems are at the frontier of fundamental and basic science research and have been contributing in fostering new concepts and novel phenomena in nature. However, understanding properties accurately and revealing mechanisms of real strongly correlated systems based on first principles have long remained a grand challenge, because of theoretical difficulties.
In this project, we have established multi-scale ab initio scheme for correlated electrons (MACE) by utilizing a hierarchical structure of the correlated electrons and applied them successfully. We have elucidated mechanisms of high-temperature superconductivity, and predicted the existence of novel topological phases in iridium compounds with strong spin-orbit interaction, thereby have contributed in understanding challenging basic physics.
