QMC @ home (Quantum Monte Carlo at home, German Quantum Monte Carlo at home) is a project of distributed computing the Westfälische Wilhelms-Universität in Münster.
The aim of the project is to test the quantum Monte Carlo method and develop for use in quantum chemistry to predict as the structure and reactivity of molecules better. Quantum Monte Carlo is a method in the simulation of quantum-mechanical systems to solve the Schrödinger equation using Monte Carlo simulations.
End of January 2007, the calculation of DNA base pairs was completed. This was followed by the investigation of alkane folding as a basic model for quantum folding processes of molecules.
QMC @ home uses the BOINC infrastructure.
