Introduction to Electronic Structure Methods
by Ursula Röthlisberger, Ivano Tavernelli
Publisher: EPFL 2011
Number of pages: 118
The main target of this course is to introduce the basic notions of computational quantum chemistry, which allow to explore reaction mechanisms and explain observations of laboratory reactions. Methods for quantum chemistry can also be applied to solid state physics problems.
