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.
We wish to ensure an intimate workshop setting, with no more than 20 to 25 participants. If you are interested in attending, but have not received an invitation, please contact the workshop organizer before registering.
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.
With a workshop organizer's approval, students/post docs/lab members/retired senior scientists can register for $50 if they are not participating as a presenter. Please register at the normal rate and send an email to Sara Friedberg (email@example.com) to let her know that you would like to participate at that rate. When you email her, please include the name of the workshop and the name of the workshop organizer who approved that participation rate. Thank you!
