This lecture series will cover the following topics:
  • Introduction to Polarizable embedding QM/MM methods (QM/MMPol) as a technique to tackle complex systems.
  • Theory and Applications of integrating QM/MMPol to describe electronic excitations and its interface with studying dynamics using the polarizable AMOEBA force field.
  • Illustration of the use of OpenMMPol, a new open-source modular library that can be interfaced with QM codes to access polarizable QM/MM models.
