To have passed the exam of Physical Chemistry of Laurea Magistrale or at least to have attended the course
Each student will prepare a short talk about a specific application of the considered method(s) and will be asked about the main features of the coonsidered computational methods.
The students will master the use of methods adopted for the computational study of molecular systems and will become able to understand their application to specific problems by solving a simple chemical probrem numerically
The course is optional, so that the outline may change according to the student's needs. In general, it is devoted to the study of one or more computational methods used in the field of chemistry. For example, it can be focused on ab initio methods, DFT, and possibly more advanced techniques, and/or computer simulation methods such as Molecular Dynamics, conventional Montecarlo and kinetic Montecarlo.
The text(s) will be chosen on the basis of the considered topics. English will be the preferred language. If suitable, the Proceeding of Interantional Schools will be used. The course materials will include original or review papers published on scientific international Journals.
Besides the lectures, practising on existing codes or developing simple codes.
1) Readiness to offer individual assistance also in English and French language to incoming students
2) Availability of supporting material and bibliographic references also in english language.
3) Readiness to accept examination of incoming students also in a foreign language (English-French)
