  • Abstract

Formal analogies between the Car-Parrinello (CP) ab-initio molecular dynamics for quantum many-body systems, and the Lattice Boltzmann (LB) method for classical and quantum fluids, are pointed out. A theoretical scenario, whereby the quantum LB would be coupled to the CP framework to speed-up many-body quantum simulations, is also discussed, together with accompanying considerations on the computational efficiency of the prospective CP-LB scheme.
