About the Author

Fabien Gatti (Montpellier, France) has a background in chemistry and theoretical quantum physics. He has experience in teaching the foundations of quantum mechanics to chemistry students at the bachelor level, advanced quantum mechanics and molecular quantum dynamics to physics and chemistry students at masters level. Gatti often organizes courses on molecular quantum dynamics in summer schools for PhD students, postdocs and researchers, including practical computer lab sessions, where the participants learn to run their own simulations with the Multi Configuration Time Dependent Hartree program package (MCTDH).
Fabien Gatti it the editor of successful books about Molecular Quantum Dynamics and the MCTDH package, for specialists as well as for practitioners. His latest book "Molecular Quantum Dynamics: From Theory to Applications" is published in Springer's series "Physical Chemistry in Action" and illustrates the power of this method for actual problems in modern physical-chemical research, containing contributions and examples by the world renowned experts.

Benjamin Lasorne is a collaborator with Fabien Gatti in Montpellier. He has a strong background in physical and theoretical chemistry and teaches theoretical chemistry to bachelor and master's students in chemistry, as well as theoretical photochemistry using molecular quantum dynamics in summer schools.

Hans-Dieter Meyer (Heidelberg, Germany) has a longstanding experience with the MCTDH methodology. He has a successful collaboration with Fabien Gatti, together with G. Worth they have edited the first book on Multidimensional Quantum Dynamics: MCTDH Theory and Applications.

Andre Nauts is emeritus Professor at the Universite Catholique de Louvain, from which he also graduated in pharmacy and with a master's and PhD degree in physics. His research interests are in molecular quantum dynamics and spectroscopy. His long teaching experiences spans from mathematics, over basic and statistical physics, to quantum mechanics and molecular physics. In the recent years, an intensive teaching collaboration has connected the activities and courses by Andre Nauts and Fabien Gatti, combining an introduction to the fundamentals with hands-on practical works in MCTDH example simulations.
