  Molecular Modelling: Principles and Applications
Molecular modelling used to be restricted to a small number of scientists who had access to the necessary computer hardware and software.
These models enable the energy of any arrangement of the atoms and molecules in the system to be calculated, and allow the modeller to determine how the energy of the system varies as the positions of the atoms and molecules change.
Molecular modelling is a rapidly developing discipline, and has benefitted from the dramatic improvements in computer hardware and software of recent years.
