o have passed the exam of Physical Chemistry of Laurea Magistrale or at least to have attended the course is warmy recommended.
Each student will prepare a short presentation about a specific application of the considered method(s) and will be asked about the theoretical principles.
The students will master the main principles of methods used for the theoretical study of molecular systems and will become able to understand their application to specific problems as reported in scientific literature.
The course is optional, so that the outline may change according to the student's needs. In general, it is devoted to lerning the developmento of codes using the FOTRAN 90 language and/or the study of one or more theoretical methods used in the field of chemistry. For example, it can be focused on the application of quantum mechanics to the study of molecular systems (ab initio methods, DFT, and possibly more advanced techniques), and/or computer simulation methods such as Molecular Dynamics and 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.
Face to face, and tutorials to deepen specific topics.esides the lectures, scientif papers reporting significant applications of the methods will be discussed.
