The seminar will focus on the literature related to the most popular molecular simulation methods for quantum mechanical systems.
In particular we will read and discuss the paper at the foundation of Path Integral Molecular Dynamics, Quantum Monte Carlo techniques and Density Functional Theory.
Moreover the reading and the discussion will be complemented by paper about the latest developments and applications of the methods.
