Tutorial Details: Introduction to Computational Chemistry

Date: Tuesday, July 11, 2006, 01:00 pm - 03:00 pm
Location: 402 Walter
Instructor(s): Benjamin J Lynch, MSI

Computational chemistry is a broad area of research that spans from quantum scattering to biomolecular modeling to nanotechnology. This tutorial will give a general overview of some of the major areas of research in computational chemistry. We will give brief explanations of the theory used as a basis for predictive modeling in each area discussed. We will also mention some real-life applications and the more popular programs used to carry out these calculations.

Prerequisites: General Chemistry
