Fock Vladimir "Fock kann einen Stiefel ausrechnen" P. Ehrenfest.

Welcome to the homepage of the V.A. Fock Meeting on Theoretical, Quantum and Computational Chemistry and of the V.A. Fock School for Quantum and Computational Chemistry.

Prof. V.A. Fock of the St. Petersburg (Leningrad) University is the inventor of the Hartree-Fock approximation (First publication on the method: Z.Phys. 61 (1930) 126.). He was born in December 1898 in St. Petersburg.
In December of the year 1998 we celebrated his 100-th anniversary by having the 1-st Session of the Fock School on Quantum and Computational Chemistry in Novgorod the Great - Russia (On the Russian scale it is pretty close to St. Petersburg).
Here you can find the history of the School since then.
Starting from the the 3-rd session the proceedings of the school are published in the International Journal of Quantum Chemistry. For the list of papers and references look here

20-th Meeting will be held 26.8 - 30.8 2024 in Velikiy Novgorod.
