Over the past years computational and quantum chemistry has emerged as one of the central branches of modern chemistry and materials science by offering a vast variety of tools for applications in academia and industry. It has become an indispensable part in the education of the next generation of chemists and materials scientists. Develpoments and applications of both computational and quantum chemistry at the Hylleraas Centre requires a profound understanding of higher mathematics, in particular, linear algebra, functional analysis, Fourier analysis and numerical analysis. 

With Hylleraas Math Help, researchers at the Hylleraas Centre hope to share some of their mathematical understanding, by offering help to other students at the Department, with the ambition that the students will later use their mathematical knowledge in chemistry.


Andre Laestadius

Andre Laestadius has more than 10 years experience of teaching mathematics on university level, including position as temporary senior lecturer at the Department of Mathematics, Uppsala University. 

Fabian Maximilian Faulstich

Fabian Faulstich is a PhD student at the Hylleraas Centre with focus on applied mathematics in quantum chemistry. He taught mathematics during his master studies at the Technical University, Berlin.
