From 2nd to 6th October 2017 the IWR hosts the school
Mathematical Methods for Quantum Chemistry,
which aims at shining some light into the simulation of quantum chemical problems
and their mathematical properties.
I am very happy to be part of the organising committee for this school,
especially since I have been missing an opportunity like this myself in the
Starting from an introduction into the basics of quantum chemistry as well as the
required concepts about optimisation and non-linear eigenvalue problems,
we will look at ways to tackle the relevant differential equations from a numerical
and algorithmic viewpoint. Hands-on practical sessions allow to apply
the treatment introduced in the lectures to simple practical problems.
After the school participants will have an idea of the required
interplay between the physical modelling, the mathematical representation
and the computational treatment needed in this highly interdisciplinary
field of research.
Speakers of the school include
The school mainly targets postgraduate students, postdocs and young
researchers from mathematics and computational chemistry.
Everyone is encouraged to participate actively by giving a short
presentation of his or her work during the available sessions of
