This research proposal contemplates computational studies of transport andnon equilibrium effects in strongly correlated systems, with particular emphasison nanostructured materials. Our goal is to investigate electronic correlation sand many-body phenomena and its manifestations on the transport properties of nanostructures such as semiconductor quantum dots and molecular complexes. To this end, we employ state-of-the-art nonperturbative numerical techniques: the numerical renormalization group (NRG) and the density matrix renormalization group (DMRG), as well as their respective time-dependent versions (tNRG andtDMRG). The project calls for que acquisition of a high-performance, 4-node cluster to perform the numerical calculations. (AU)
