Multivariate Minimization in Computational Chemistry

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


Optimization is a fundamental component of molecular modeling. The determination of a low-energy conformation for a given force field can be the final objective of the computation. It can also serve as a starting point for subsequent calculations, such as molecular dynamics simulations or normal-mode analyses.
