Module overview

This module builds on the student’s core understanding of the structure

of atoms and molecules to predict their behaviour using state-of-the art

computational chemistry methods. This will involve learning how

quantum chemistry methods can be used to study atoms and molecules

and how classical mechanics methods can be used to simulate molecules

and biomolecules. These two methodologies are related and we will

explore their respective and mutual applications. Emphasis will be placed

upon learning how to use these methods for real-life applications.
