## TBPM: Simulation of Multimillion-To-Billion Atoms

The newly developed tight-binding propagation methods (TBPM) are based on the wave propagation of electron according to the time-dependent Schrödinger equation, and applied in the calculations of the following subjects:

Electronic properties: density of states, local density of states, Landau levels, quasieigenstates;

Transport properties: electronic conductivity, diffusion coefficients, mean free path, localization length, carrier velocity and mobility, tunneling probability;

Optical properties: optical conductivity, light transmittance and absorbance;

Screening properties: polarization function, response function, dielectric function, energy loss function, plasmon life time, plasmon damping rate;

The computational effort increases only linearly with the system size, and it is possible to calculate systems up to billions of atoms without any diagonalization.
The details about the numerical methods are described in Phys. Rev. B. 82, 115448 (2010), Phys. Rev. B 84, 035439 (2011), Phys. Rev. B 91, 045420 (2015), Nature Communications 11, 371 (2020), and Nature Communications 11, 371 (2020).

### Low-dimensional Quantum Systems

Low-dimensional Quantum Systems, such as two-dimensional (2D) materials, nanotubes (1D) and quantum dots (0D), are different from conventional three-dimensional (3D) materials due to the reduced-dimensionality. They have many interesting physical properties and are believed to be essential for the development of new electronic and photonic devices in the future. A deep understanding of the novel properties of low-dimensional quantum systems is carried out theoretically and numerically, with strong collaborations with experimental groups world widely. Combinations of different theoretical approaches, including first-principles calculations, tight-binding approximation, molecular dynamics simulations, and many other state-of-art numerical methods, have been implemented in the study of these systems.

### Moire Superlattice

When two periodic lattices are stacked on top of each other with a relative twist or a mismatched lattice constant, they can form a superlattice with the so-called Moire pattern. Experimentally, the Moire superlattice has been realized by stacking two-dimensional crystals together, including graphene, hexagonal boron nitride, molybdenum disulfide and many others. The stacking of a Moire superlattice with a third layer may create even larger (quasi)periodical structures, the super superlattice. Exciting new physics emerges on Moire superlattices, including flat bands, Mott insulators, unconventional superconductors, and new topological phases. The main difficulty in the theoretical study of Moire superlattice lies in the fact that the supercell usually contains too many atoms, which are beyond the direct calculations using either DFT or TB models, especially when considering accurate atomic structures, including relaxation effects due to the interaction between the layers. Our strategy to treat the superlattice is to build an exact tight-binding model from the atomic structure, either obtained from the experiments or molecular dynamics simulations and then apply TBPM to study its properties numerically. Examples of our strategy can be found in the following examples. If you wanto study a large superlattice within the tight-binding approximation, you may use our homemade simulation package TBPLaS to hand over these complex quantum systems.

### Fractals

The recent progress in the design and fabrication of nanoscale materials makes it possible to create electrons moving in complex geometries such as fractals experimentally. Fractals are self-similar structures at all length scales with a non-integer dimension. The lack of translational invariance makes fractals quite different from periodic crystals since Bloch's theory does not hold anymore. We study theoretically and numerically to understand the quantum mechanics of electrons roaming in spaces with a fractional dimension.

### Quasicrystal

A quasicrystal has a quasiperiodic structure that is ordered but not periodic. It lacks translational symmetry but presents rotational symmetries. Since the original discovery by Dan Shechtman in 1982, hundreds of quasicrystals have been reported and confirmed, most often in aluminium alloys. Our recent theoretical investigation of quasicrystals mainly focuses on dodecagonal quasicrystals which have been fabricated recently in twisted bilayer graphene. Interlayer hybridization in quasicrystal leads to rich physics which are not presented in periodic crystals with translation symmetry.

### Quantum Spin Systems and Quantum Computation

The manner in which a quantum system becomes effectively classical is of great importance for the foundations of quantum physics. It has become increasingly clear that the symptoms of classicality of quantum systems can be induced by their environments. Over the past years, we used a toy model to explore decoherence and thermalization of quantum spin systems. We demonstrate that a classic state such as canonical ensemble is reachable via pure quantum dynamics. An extension of the modeling of quantum spin systems lead to the simulation of quantum computers, in which the logical operations of the quantum computation are constructed by a quantum spin system with specified Hamiltonian. This is a very efficient way to simulate the quantum computers, although the number of the qubits that can be simulated is limited by the memory of the machine, it still provides a theoretical tool to investigate the properties of quantum computers in a real device considering the effects of the environments and/or possible noises due internal or external sources.

## TBPLaS: Tight-binding Package for Large-scale Simulation

TBPLaS is an open-source package for building and solving tight-binding models, with emphasis on handling large systems.
Thanks to the utilization of tight-binding propagation method (TBPM), sparse matrices, C/FORTRAN extensions, and hybrid OpenMP+MPI parallelization,
TBPLaS is capable of solving models with billions of orbitals on computers with moderate hardware.
TBPLaS can be applied to (1) models with arbitrary shape and boundary conditions, (2) defects, impurities and disorders, (3) hetero-structures, quasicrystal, fractals, (4) 1D, 2D and 3D structures. The implemented numerical methods include:

Exact-diagonalization: Band structure, density of states (DOS), wave functions, Lindhard functions;

Recursive Green's function method: Local density of states (LDOS);

Tight-binding propagation method (TBPM): DOS, LDOS and carrier density; Optical (AC) conductivity and absorption spectrum; Electrical (DC) conductivity and time-dependent diffusion coefficient, carrier velocity, mobility, elastic mean free path, Anderson localization length; Polarization function, response function, dielectric function, energy loss function, plasmon dispersion, plasmon lifetime and damping rate; Quasi-eigenstate and realspace charge density;

Kernel polynomial method: Electrical (DC) and Hall Conductivity.
