Workshop Details
Many-Body Interactions: From Quantum Mechanics to Force Fields
07/02/2012 - 07/06/2012
Meeting Description:

This workshop was supported in part by the Center from Simulation and Modeling, Univ. of Pittsburgh (

Simulations of complex materials and chemical and biological systems requires the use of model potentials (force fields). As a consequence, the results of the simulations are "only as good as the force field employed." In principle, high-level electronic structure calculations on appropriate model systems can provide the information needed for generating accurate force fields. This workshop brings together researchers with expertise in force field development and those with expertise in electronic structure methods.
