Quantum Leap in Understanding
Asian Winter School in Quantum Chemistry
7 – 11 Dec 2015
The Asian Winter School in Quantum Chemistry was led by IAS Visiting Professor Garnet Chan from Princeton University. The program was designed for graduate students wanting to gain an understanding of the theoretical principles underlying many of the methods used in modern quantum chemistry and condensed matter electronic structure research.
The event comprised both in-depth theoretical lectures and hands-on computer sessions. The 50 student participants enjoyed the lectures and appreciated the coverage of various topics with an appropriate level of difficulty. They also praised the computer sessions, which allowed them to engage in face-to-face interactions with lecturers and gain hands-on practice.
