Machine Learning Speeds Up Quantum Chemistry Calculations
Machine Learning Speeds Up Quantum Chemistry Calculations
Quantum chemistry, the study of chemical properties and processes at the quantum scale, has opened many paths to research and discovery in modern chemistry. Without ever handling a beaker or a test tube, chemists can make predictions about the properties of a given atom or molecule and how it will undergo chemical reactions by studying its electronic structure-how its electrons are arranged in orbitals-and how those electrons interact with those of other compounds or atoms.
