Foundations for modelling molecular materials for nanotechnology: an ARCNN Summer School

University of Queensland North, Stradbroke Island 11/12/2006 - 15/12/2006

This summer school is designed especially for postgraduate students and postdocs, to fill in gaps of their background. The lectures and tutorials will be at a level that they should be accessible to postgraduate students in either chemistry or physics, both theoretical and experimental.
Topics to be covered include:
  • molecular dynamics
  • electronic structure calculations
  • density functional theory
  • quantum many-body theory
  • molecular orbitals
  • quantum dots
  • Kondo effect
  • quantum decoherence
  • electronic properties of surfaces
