Research Interests

I am currently developing the Singular Euler-Maclaurin (SEM) expansion, a method that uses techniques from number theory in order to transform large scale lattice sums into integral and differential operators. In contrast to the standard Euler-Maclaurin expansion, the SEM also converges in the case of singular functions, which are of enormous practical importance, as most physical interaction potentials belong to this class. This opens a way for computing macroscopic crystal dynamics precisely and efficiently independently of particle number. Code examples can be found on my  GitHub repo.
