Simulating the universe (at molecular level)

A brief and necessarily incomplete description of the long scientific journey characterizing the theoretical and computational study of the universe of molecules will be provided. While the object of this field is often referred to as "molecular biology" by biologists and "nanophysics/nanoscience" by physicists, we just call it "chemistry". Just as a sign of personal vanity, a few examples of elementary contributions to the field given by the speaker will be eventually mentioned along the presentation (sorry for the inconvenience).
