**Introduction to Electronic Structure Methods**

by Ursula RĂ¶thlisberger, Ivano Tavernelli

**Publisher**: EPFL 2011**Number of pages**: 118

**Description**:

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.
