Quantum effects play an important role in chemical processes ranging from the influence of zero-point energy and tunneling on charge transfer, to the role of non-adiabatic transitions between multiple potential energy surfaces in photochemical reactions. The challenge of understanding and simulating quantum effects in complex, many-particle systems has led to a great deal of interest in the development of new theoretical tools aimed at providing an atomic-level view of quantum-chemical dynamics. These simulation approaches will be used to model quantum phenomena in a wide variety of problems, ranging from proton and electron transfer in enzymes, to electronic energy transfer in photovoltaic devices, to the photoisomerization of biological chromophores.
This meeting provides a forum for researchers to discuss the development of new theoretical methods aimed at modelling time-dependent and time-independent properties in many-particle quantum-mechanical systems, as well as present recent applications of quantum simulation methods in modelling complex chemical processes in condensed-phase environments.

TSRC is about expanding the frontiers of science, exploring new ideas, and building collaborations. The workshop schedule will allow for substantial unstructured time for participants to talk and think. All participants are expected to stay for the entire duration of the workshop. Scientists are encouraged to consider bringing family or friends. Telluride offers a number of options for children's camps (including Telluride Academy, Aha School for the Arts, and Pinhead Institute). There is more information on childcare, camps, and family activities on TSRC's website. Feel free to contact TSRC's staff to help with any planning and/or coordinating care.
