The group focuses on the development of quantum chemistry models with universally trusted predictive power and their acceleration to routinely affordable simulation times. Using our record-fast programs, we also aim at the modeling and understanding of complicated molecular interactions and chemical reactions, which are not accessible with chemical accuracy via lower-cost alternative models.
