## Quantum Chemistry

IK's graduate level course for chemists, physicists, and biologists who wish to acquire practical skills of performing *ab initio*, DFT, and molecular dynamics simulations of realistic systems using modern software and supercomputers. The lectures provide basic theoretical background and focus on practical recipes for the calculation of commonly encountered physical and chemical properties.

## Mathematical Methods in Chemistry

The mathematics course that IK is teaching at the University of Southampton. The course is designed to give first year chemists all the background necessary for the subsequent courses in kinetics, thermodynamics, and molecular quantum mechanics. Basic statistics is covered, and an introduction is given into numerical methods and machine algebra systems.
