On the scientific side, the introduction of new techniques which can virtually see at molecular level has revolutionized the way chemistry is practiced today. One has started looking at nano scale and started designing and fabricating tools at nano scale. This can have far reaching consequences and the expected surprises can be in almost all sectors of human endeavour. It is therefore natural that the teaching and learning of Chemistry have also to change. This is evident from the methodology that one has to adopt since lecture based courses are not longer appealing and one has to use a variety of soft ware tools to demonstrate and make the molecules perform so that the teacher and the taught is enjoying the knowledge transfer process in a totally different platform.

by J. Grotendorst, N. Attig, S. Bluegel, D. Marx - Julich Supercomputing Centre
Coarse graining of molecular systems and solids, quantum/classical hybrid methods, embedding and multiple time step techniques, creating reactive potentials, multiscale magnetism, adaptive resolution ideas or hydrodynamic interactions are discussed.
by Peter Dybdahl Hede - BookBoon
This book provides a beginners guide to hydrodynamic modelling with focus on agglomeration processes. The basic terms and principles are introduced including Eulerian and Langrangian models. The text is on a bachelor or master-of-science level.
by William A. Goddard III - California Institute of Technology
This text explanes the structure of molecules using quantum mechanical ideas, stressing qualitative and semi-quantitative considerations with the emphasis on developing principles that can be used to make reliable predictions on new systems.
by J. E. Parker - Bookboon
This volume is the second of a three part series of texts taken during a first-year university course. Tutorial questions with fully worked solutions structured on a weekly basis to help the students to self-pace themselves are used.
