The following topics will be covered:

-         Combined quantum mechanical methods for prognosis of structures and properties of quantum objects;

-         Mechanisms of chemical and energy exchange processes.

Mechanisms of production and oxidation of polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAH) in combustion zones will be studied using contemporary methods of quantum chemistry; also, rate constants for processes with active forms of oxygen will be calculated.


Experimental facilities of Samara University and computational resources from International Florida University, Emory University and Samara University will be used. Leading foreign scientists will participate in the school activities, among them: Michael Heaven (Emory University, Atlanta, USA), Alexander Mebel (International Florida University, Miami, USA) and Ralf Kaiser (University of Hawai'I at Manoa, Honolulu, USA).

Among the Russian scientists who will particpate in the Quantum Chemistry School are Deputy Chairman of RAS scientific Council on combustion and explosion N.N. Smirnov (Moscow State University), professor Stolyarov A.V.  (Moscow State University), T.V. Rakhimova ( Moscow State University), A.I. Chichinin (Institute of Chemical Kinetics and Combustion, Novosibirsk) and many others.
