Students will obtain basic knowledge of quantum-chemical principles, molecular dynamics, and computationas in chemistry, Spectroscopic methods and properties are emphasized, such as NMR and vibrational spectroscopy. The lecture is completed by exercises with computers.


Overview of ab initio methods useful for computation of molecular properties will be given, with practical examples on computers. The topics include:
1. Classical and quantum concepts of molecular modelling
2. Ab initio methods and the Schrödinger equation
3. Basic axioms of quantum mechanics
4. Prediction of molecule properties from wavefunction
5. Approximate computational approaches in quantum mechanics
6. Density functional methods
7. Electromagnetic molecular properties
8. Energy minimalization, conformer averaging
9. Conformation analysis
10. Simulation of vibrational, optical, and NMR spectral properties
11. Prediction of protein structure, sequence analysis and protein structure
12. Solvent models for quantum computations
13. Applications of molecular modelling to new structural design
