ECS289K Introduction to Quantum Simulations

Instructor: Francois Gygi, Professor, Department of Computer Science, UC Davis

This class provides a hands-on introduction to modern methods of atomic-scale quantum simulations for atoms, molecules, solids and liquids. Quantum simulations of materials rely on fundamental physical principles, including a quantum mechanical description of electronic structure. They have become an important research tool in chemistry, physics and materials science.
