Over many years of dynamic and energetic development, quantum chemistry turned into a fully mature science able to describe and model molecular systems containing even hundreds of atoms. Its capabilities are continuously growing along with the progress in computer miniaturisation and the development of faster and parallel computational algorithms. In our quest to unravel molecular mysteries deeply rooted in the NANO&BIO world, with most funding grants scaling super-linearly with the size of studied atomic systems, and with the constantly growing complexity of the modern research techniques, we seldom take a moment to look back at the roots of quantum chemistry, at the underlying approximations, and the resulting issue of the error control. This seminar is supposed to show you how surprising such a look can be.
