Recent evolutions in nanosciences and
nanotechnologies provide strong arguments to support the opportunity and
importance of the topics approached in this book, the fundamental and
applicative aspects related to molecular interactions being of large interest in
both research and innovative environments. We expect this book to have a strong
impact at various education and research training levels, for young and
experienced researchers from both academia and industry.
This note is intended for graduate
students who specialize in computational or theoretical quantum chemistry. Its
goal is to have students acquire skills essential for developing new computational methodologies broadly applicable to atomic, molecular, solid-state
This lecture note explores a wide range of techniques and applications in
molecular modeling and computational chemistry. Topics covered includes: ab
Initio and Semi-Empirical Quantum Mechanics, Molecular Mechanics and Dynamics
Simulation, Electrostatics, Coarse Graining Biomolecular Structure Prediction,
Advanced Electrostatics for Force Fields, Molecular Dynamics Simulation, Monte
This book was designed primarily for advanced-undergraduate and
first-year graduate students as an introduction to molecular orbital theory.
Topics covered includes: Atomic Orbitals, Diatomic Molecules, Electronic States
of Molecules, Hybridization, Band Intensities, Triatomic Molecules, Selected
Molecules with Four or More Atoms and Molecular Orbitals Involving d Valence
This book is an introduction to molecular electronic structural
theory. It is aimed at students who have reasonable familiarity with
differential and integral calculus and are beginning a study of the physical
description of chemical systems.
