    Re-evaluating semi-empirical computer simulations in quantum chemistry
    with María Silvia Polzella
    Foundations of Chemistry 21 (1): 83-95. 2019.
    Usually within the context of computer simulations in quantum chemistry practices, there is a distinction between ab initio and semi-empirical methods. Related to this, a controversy within the scientific and philosophical communities came about regarding the superiority of the ab initio methods due to their theoretical rigor. In this article we re-evaluate the condition of the semi-empirical simulations in this area of research. We examine some of the aspects of this debate that have been consi…Read more
