Joint Workshop with IAEA on Uncertainty Assessment for Atomic and Molecular Data
July 7-9, 2014
at ITAMP, Cambridge MA, USA
This event will be webcast live at our channel
The workshop will bring together experts working on electron collisions with atoms, ions, and molecules, heavy-particle collisions, and electronic structure of atoms and molecules (with structure viewed here as a prerequisite for collision calculations). The primary goals are to come up with reasonable uncertainty estimates for calculations using the various methods of collision physics: perturbative, nonperturbative, time-independent, time-dependent, semi-classical, etc. Generally, the workshop focus will be on theoretical atomic and molecular data relevant to fusion and astrophysical plasmas, where modeling codes mostly use theoretical atomic and molecular data for which assessments of accuracy are necessary. There will also be data users at the meeting, as well as those who manage databases.
