Abstract

The aim of this chapter is not just to make a general description of the computational methods used in this thesis (as it is usually the case), but also to try to provide an overview of what quantum mechanics is, and how do we use it to study chemical reactions. In particular, the first part of this chapter will be devoted to make a brief introduction on the origin and some basic concepts of quantum mechanics. In the second part of this chapter, an overview of how computational chemists apply quantum mechanics to the study of chemical reactions, which are the approximations that we do, and how do we obtain valuable information by means of these approximations will be provided. Finally, in the last part of this chapter, the methods that have been used during this thesis will be briefly described.

Keywords

Density Functional Theory Generalize Gradient Approximation Local Density Approximation Exact Exchange Local Spin Density Approximation 
These keywords were added by machine and not by the authors. This process is experimental and the keywords may be updated as the learning algorithm improves.
