Effect of electron interaction of electronic and transport properties of graphene ribbons is unexplored topic to a large extent. In this project, quantum-mechanical calculations are to be performed to address some of those issues. Particularly, the effects of electron-electron interaction and magnetic field on low energy transport in ribbons of different crystallographic orientation. A part of the problem here is the need for self-consistent calculations to obtain charge densities and potentials for a system out of charge neutrality. The methods requiring self-consistent calculations constitute a difficulty themselves and to tackle that difficulty a computational resources are required.
