Jeremy Richardson wins the Hans G. A. Hellmann-Prize for theoretical chemistry

Richardson-Hellman
Jeremy Richardson wins the Hans G. A. Hellmann-Prize for theoretical chemistry
for his theoretical developments in the field of instanton theory for tunnel reactions in extended systems.

He works on the development of new theoretical and computational methods for molecular simulations. The aim is to describe the underlying quantum dynamics as precisely as possible with efficient algorithms that are based solely on classical mechanics. In particular, he uses path integral methods as well as semiclassical instanton theory to predict tunnel effects in proton and electron transfer processes. In further projects, systems with coherent, non-adiabatic dynamics are described with the help of classical spin vectors.
