Fort the past fourty years my research has focused on the theory of condensed matter. In particular, it involved the study of Alloy Physics, Magnetism and Superconductivity from a point of view which describes matter as positively charged point nuclei held together by an electron 'glue' subject to the laws of Many-Body Quantum Mechanics. Currently I am engaged on four projects:

**First principles description of highly correlated electron systems**: M.Luders, A. Ernst, M.Dane, Z.Szotek, A.Svane, D.Kodderitzsch, W.Hergert, B.L.Gyorffy, and W.M.Temmerman Phys. B**97**205109 (2005).*Self-interaction correction in multiple scattering theory***Electronic structure of random alloys with short range order:**D.A.Rowlands, J.B.Staunton, B.L.Gyorffy, E.Bruno and B.Ginatempo Phys.Rev.B**72**045101 (2005).*Effects of short-range order on the electronic structure of disordered metallic systems***Current induced switching of magnetic orientations:**K.Capelle, G. Vignale, and B. L. Gyorffy Phys.Rev.Lett.**87**206403 (2001).*Spin currents and spin dynamics in time-dependent density functional theory***Quantum Computing using superconducting nanoparticles:**D.A. Rodrigues, B.L.
