The Series of Lectures "Selected topics in molecular modeling" by

Prof. Peter Pulay

COURSE OBJECTIVES: To introduce the participants to modern methods of molecular modeling, starting from mechanical and graphical modeling and culminating in electronic structure modeling and, if time permits, molecular dynamics. The course will not address complex derivations of the methods and there will be no programming. Participants will be provided with modern quantum chemistry software (PQS), including a Graphical user Interface for use on Windows computers. The course will include a weekly assignment of modeling problems.

To investigate infrared absorption spectra of weak complexes, essentially dimer (SF6)2, in inert (argon and nitrogen) matrixes. The Monte Carlo simulations with 200-1500 molecules are made and the calculated spectra sufficiently reproduce the main characteristics of the spectrum. For the more accurate estimation and the calculation of the some features of the dimmer spectrum in nitrogen matrixes it is interesting to use a quantum chemistry method, especially Car-Parrinello molecular dynamic and to compute a spectrum of dimer with a few near molecules.
