McCoy Group GitHub

Much of the code the McCoy Group writes is hosted on GitHub. You can take a look at what we’ve been up to there and potentially get ideas for your own code.

McCoy Group References

We’ve started putting some little reference write-ups for various methods we use on the internet. We created a website for these as well as some little bits of documentation for the code we’ve been writing. 

Chemistry Department Seminar Schedule

Theoretical Chemistry student seminars are held every Monday at 11:30 in CHB 102. Physical Chemistry, and career-focused seminars may also be of interest. The Physics department also has an excellent seminar series.

International Symposium on Molecular Spectroscopy

Week-long annual symposium based on molecular spectroscopy. It is a conference designed for presentation experience for graduate students.  It is held at University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign at the end of June.

Northwest Theoretical Chemistry Conference

The Northwest Theoretical Chemistry Conference offers students and postdocs the opportunity to present their work in a collaborative and nurturing setting.  Opportunities, capabilities, and experience from the local universities and the national laboratories are highlighted.    The inaugural conference was held from Oct. 26 until Oct. 28, 2017 at Pacific Northwest National Laboratory in Richland, WA.

Midwest Theoretical Chemistry Conference

The Midwest theory meetings have provided us with an opportunity to celebrate theoretical chemistry in the Midwest, starting with the first meeting at the University of Chicago in 1967. Talks will be contributed with the expectation that the majority will be presented by students or postdocs. In addition there will be poster sessions and several longer, invited talks.

Dynamics of Molecular Collisions Meeting

This conference highlights recent work, both experimental and theoretical, in the broad subject of Collision Dynamics in the gas phase from solid surfaces and at interfaces. This year’s program consists of about thirty invited lectures and several poster sessions on subjects of current research interest in Chemical Dynamics and related areas.

Journal of Physical Chemistry

In 1996 the Journal of Physical Chemistry (JPC) split into two volumes, A and B, (within the last few years C split off from B). Each journal covers a relevant portion of the physical chemistry field. JPCA publishes research on dynamics; clusters, excited states; kinetics; spectroscopy; atmospheric, environmental and green chemistry; molecular structure; quantum chemistry; and general theory. JPCB publishes research on macromolecules, soft matter, surfactants, membranes, statistical mechanics, thermodynamics, medium effects, and biophysical chemistry. JPCC publishes research on nanoparticles, nanostructures, surfaces, interfaces, catalysis, electron transport, optical and electronic devices, hard matter, and energy conversion and storage.
