CPGS talk. Note unusual venue.

This talk provides a brief overview of how the Feynman path integral expression for the partition function can be used to calculate quantum tunnelling splittings. The ‘ring polymer’ isomorphism and the ‘instanton’ solutions to the equations of motion will also be covered. The talk will close with a discussion of the application of these ideas to water clusters.

This talk is part of the Theoretical Chemistry Informal Seminars series.
