Description

Quantum mechanics (QM), also known as quantum physics or quantum theory, is a branch of physics providing a mathematical description of much of the dual particle-like and wave-like behavior and interactions of energy and matter. It departs from classical mechanics primarily at the atomic and subatomic scales, the so-called quantum realm. In advanced topics of QM, some of these behaviors are macroscopic and only emerge at very low or very high energies or temperatures.

  1. In the context of molecular dynamics, when does classical mechanics breakdown?

    Closed | Responses: 0

    In the context of molecular dynamics, when does classical mechanics breakdown? I viewed a lecture and wrote down some of the main points that the professor discussed. One of them was the...

  2. Is there a good simulation of proton-neutron interaction?

    Closed | Responses: 0

    I have recently been exposed to several new material about quantum mechanics, and I am really interested in the atomic interaction and what new applications can be found out of it; so I was...

  3. ABINIT: First-Time User Guide

    09 Jun 2009 | | Contributor(s):: Benjamin P Haley

    This first-time user guide provides an introduction to using ABINIT on nanoHUB. We include a very brief summary of Density Functional Theory along with a tour of the Rappture interface. We discuss the default simulation (what happens if you don't change any inputs, and just hit "simulate") as...

  9. Application-driven Co-Design: Using Proxy Apps in the ASCR Materials Co-Design Center

    31 May 2012 | | Contributor(s):: Jim Belak

    Computational materials science is performed with a suite of applications that span the quantum mechanics of interatomic bonding to the continuum mechanics of engineering problems and phenomenon specific models in between. In this talk, we will review this suite and the motifs used in each of...

    30 Apr 2008 | | Contributor(s):: Jeffrey C Grossman, Elif Ertekin

    In this lecture we introduce the basic concepts that will be needed as we explore simulation approaches that describe the electronic structure of a system.

  19. Computational Nanoscience, Lecture 20: Quantum Monte Carlo, part I

    15 May 2008 | | Contributor(s):: Elif Ertekin, Jeffrey C Grossman

    This lecture provides and introduction to Quantum Monte Carlo methods. We review the concept of electron correlation and introduce Variational Monte Carlo methods as an approach to going beyond the mean field approximation. We describe briefly the Slater-Jastrow expansion of the wavefunction,...
