CECAM-MARVEL Classics in molecular and materials modelling: Roberto Car and Michele Parrinello

Jul 25, 2019, from 9:30 until 12:00, BCH 2201, EPFL

On Jul 25, MARVEL and CECAM are hosting the second lecture in the series "Classics in molecular and materials modeling" at EPFL.

The lecture will be held in BCH 2201 from 09:30 to 12:00:

Car-Parrinello Molecular Dynamics

Roberto Car (Princeton University) and Michele Parrinello (ETHZ)

followed by an interview with the speakers conducted by Giulia Galli (University of Chicago)

This lecture is the second in the series"Classics in molecular and materials modeling" series, hosted by CECAM and MARVEL at EPFL. In this series, methods that have become fundamental tools in computational physics and chemistry will be presented by their originators at a level appropriate for second year master and graduate students. The lecture will be followed by an interview with the presenters: we’ll ask them to recall for us the period, problems, people and circumstances that accompanied the creation of milestone methods and algorithms that we now routinely use. The event will be recorded and followed by an apero. 

We hope that you will be able to join us and share with us this unusual and interesting opportunity to learn first hand from pioneers who have contributed significantly to our field and to get to know better the history and anecdotes behind work that is now recorded in books.
