Synopsis

One of the challenges faced in computational nanotechnology is the immense computational power needed to simulate systems at atomic and molecular level. Even a small sample of materials few nanometers thick contain many thousand atoms. So calculation of the properties and simulation of mater at such a scale require developing novel computational techniques to enhance the efficiency and allow for larger systems to be simulated for longer time spans.
