BEYOND THE SPHERICAL COW: ATOMISTIC SIMULATIONS OF COMPLEX MATERIALS
Honoring Roberto Car and Michele Parrinello recipients of the 2020 Benjamin Franklin Medal in Chemistry
The 2020 Franklin Institute Laureate Symposium will be held at Temple University to honor Dr. Roberto Car and Dr. Michele Parrinello who received the Benjamin Franklin Medal in Chemistry for inventing an efficient computational method that applies quantum mechanics to determine the interactions of large numbers of atoms in motion, which is used today to describe and design diverse chemicals and materials, and to understand biological systems.
