ICL Research Profile



The Numerically-Exact Relativistic Many-Body Electronic Structure of Heavy Elements (RHE-HPC for short) project is a collaborative effort focused on development of a completely new and novel computational tool that enables, for the first time, fully-predictive calculations on molecules containing f-block elements. This effort includes high-performance distributed and heterogeneous computing to assist with tuning the implementation of novel methods for execution on large-scale HPC platforms, including exascale machines.

RHE-HPC enables advances in global needs involving f elements, with focus on actinium-225, a highly promising radiotherapeutic to treat cancer. The team includes members from The University of Tennessee, Stony Brook University, and Virginia Tech.
