They present chapters covering basic concepts of vector space theory of matter, consequences of quantum mechanics, chemistry and quantum mechanics, approximations for many-electron systems, perturbation theory in quantum chemistry, group theory in theoretical chemistry, computational quantum chemistry methods, force field methods and molecular modeling, and Monte Carlo and molecular dynamics methods of statistical simulation.
These studies apply force field methods such as the Merck Molecular Force Field (MMFF[R]) and AMBER[R] in the context of molecular dynamics and free-energy calculations, as well as conventional gas-phase minimizations.
