The Numerical Renormalization Group is a method devised by Kenneth Wilson et al. to solve many-body problems. It is a numerical non-perturbative procedure, which was used in 1975 to solve the Kondo model for low temperature. It was applied to the Anderson model by Krishnamurthy et al. in 1980. It is an iterative procedure, which is an example of a Renormalization group technique.
