Collaborative research and education to develop and apply algorithms and software for simulating electronic non-adiabatic dynamics for reactions with organic materials; and train graduate, undergraduate, and high school students.

  • Annual Workshops

  • An annual workshop will be held alternately at the U.S .and European Universities.

  • Three international leaders in theoretical/computational chemistry will be invited to present a lecture.

  • Workshops will be broadcast on the web in real time.

  • Cyberinfrastructure for Disseminating Software and Research Results

  • Research results and international collaboration methodologies, including chemical dynamics models, simulation algorithms, software, and source codes, databases, documentations, and publications will be made available world-wide to other researchers, educators, and students through the Chemical Dynamics Software and Simulations System website cdssim.chem.ttu.edu.

  • “Junior Summer Abroad” Program for Undergraduates

  • Novel “Junior Summer Abroad” experience for promising science and engineering students.

  • An 8-week coordinated summer research experience at the site of one of our international partners, for 5 undergraduates each summer, as well as three graduate students.

  • The graduate students will provide leadership and mentoring, as well as guidance in collaborative research projects.

  • All research projects will be directed by of the host institution and U.S. faculty who will be in residence for the 8-week program.

  • At the end of the program, all students will present their accomplishments in a symposium attended by all faculty and student participants, other members of the international collaboration from both the U.S. and abroad, and other interested attendees.

  • Algorithm and Software Development

  • Development of algorithms and computer programs for dynamics simulations.

  • Direct coupling of dynamics and electronic structure theory computer programs.

  • Software freely distributed.

  • Direct Dynamics Applications

  • Reactions of oxygen molecules with hydrocarbon fuels.

  • Reactions of energetic oxygen atoms with polymer coatings of space craft.

  • Collisions of projectile ions with organic surfaces in ion implantation and surface-induced dissociation (SID).

  • Radiation-induced bond breaking in biomolecules such as DNA.

  • International Research Experience for US and Europeon Graduate Students

  • U.S. Ph.D. students will spend at least one semester performing research at an European partner university.

  • U. S. Ph.D. students will attend a 4 week long annual European summer school on “Theoretical Chemistry and Computational Modeling”.

  • European students will study in the U.S..
