What is it about?

Positronium is a light atom formed by an electron and a positron. This exotic atom is interesting in many ways. As a strongly correlated system it can be used to test the models of interacting many body systems and the models used to simulate electrons in matter. On the other hand, Positronium (Ps) annihilation spectroscopy can study pores in materials. An accurate simulate of the properties of Ps will make easier to interpret the experiments. This publication introduces advanced methods to improve the simulation capabilities of Ps.
