HYPERCUBE, INC. TO DISTRIBUTE SCIENCE LEARNING TUTORIALS
August 23, 1998
Boston, MA (ACS Conference) – Hypercube, Inc. announced that it have agreed to acquire and distribute several tutorials in computational chemistry, currently owned by Science Learning Ltd. The tutorials cover the use of HyperChem through theory and applications. They will be available for purchase from Hypercube, Inc. in both electronic and physical form, after their translation into English is completed. Series Editor of the tutorials is Tim Clark, Editor of the Journal of Molecular Modeling.
With the development of powerful molecular modeling packages like HyperChem, academic teaching relies more and more on software-facilitated education. The tutorials are a great tool for students to gain both an understanding of scientific principles and software expertise in HyperChem. Some of the topics covered by the Tutorials in Computational Chemistry are:
· Semi-empirical MO Calculations -Theory and Applications for HyperChem.
· Force Field Calculations - Theory and Applications for HyperChem.
· Ab Initio MO Calculations - Theory and Applications for HyperChem.
· Prediction of Spectroscopic Data - Theory and Applications for HyperChem.
· Modeling of Inorganic Compounds - Examples for HyperChem and MOMEC.
