Abstract : Quantum simulation techniques were applied to a number of the most outstanding problems in the physics of solids, with a particular emphasis on magnetism and superconductivity. In addition, these techniques were further developed in significant new directions. Several experimental results have been explained by our theoretical calculations and simulations, specially in the area of angle-resolved photoemission experiments. New theories for the high-temperature superconductors have been analyzed with numerical techniques. Metamagnetic transitions and ferromagnetism have been studied in the context of strongly correlated electrons. The original objectives of the proposal have been accomplished. A vast amount of additional information on models of correlated electrons has been documented. New directions of research have been identified.
