Title: High Performance Computing and Quantum Chemistry
Speaker: Jason Keith, Assistant Professor of Chemistry

With the rise in computational power of the last quarter century and the development of new faster quantum chemical techniques such as density functional theory computation has become a requisite part of modern chemistry research. This includes examination of chemical structures, various types of spectroscopy including vibrational and electronic as well as the understanding of chemical reaction mechanisms and the resulting kinetics. His talk will focus on the basic machinery of quantum based techniques as well as the presentation of some of his current results.
