Content

Short repetition of the basic concepts of quantum mechanics and the main numerical algorithms used for practical implementions. Basic principles of electronic structure methods: Hartree-Fock, many body perturbation theory, configuration interaction, coupled-cluster theory, density functional theory. Overview of computational molecular modelling techniques.
Application of these techniques in a practical research project.
