“Molecular Dynamics/Quantum Mechanics Studies of Spectra and Reactions” is the title of today’s School of Computational Sciences (SCS) research colloquium. Adrian Roitberg from the National Institute of Standards and Technology in Gaithersburg, Md., will lead the discussion.

The research colloquia series is related to the research activities of the Computer Design of Materials group in SCS. Speakers, both inside and outside of the Mason community, present weekly topics related to condensed matter, physics, and chemistry. The seminars are held on Mondays at 4:30 p.m. in Science and Technology I, Room 206.

Two additional talks are scheduled for the rest of the semester.

  • On Nov. 13, Craig S. Hartley, who works at the Air Force Office of Scientific Research located in Arlington, Va., will present “Multiscale Modeling of Dislocation Processes.”
  • On Nov. 20, Akira Suzuki, from Mason’s School of Computational Sciences, will present “Atomistic Simulation of Point Defects in Grain Boundaries.”
