basic information




Research activities are focused on

  • Global optimization methods
  • Development of advanced computational methods in quantum chemistry
Within the Department, a software package for quantum-chemical and microelectrostatic calculations is being developed. The package is also being used for teaching purposes.

Department seminars, organized together with the Department of Theoretical Chemistry, take place on Wednesdays, 10:15 am, room 17. The list of presentations is maintained by the Department of Theoretical Chemistry.


Teaching activities at the Department involve mainly:

  • information technology for chemistry and environment protection students
  • numerical methods
  • molecular modelling
  • applied mathematics
MSc theses completed in the Department

Other activities

Another important field of activity is supervision and development of the Faculty computer network services.
