My stay in CMO last week was very useful because calculations of free energy are not an easy thing to perform. Currently I am working on the numerical simulation and modelling of molecular systems which have organic compounds and are very complex. Additionally they undergo processes which make molecular dynamics simulations very limited in the sense that only metastable states can be achieved. Several talks at Oaxaca addressed these kinds of problems and opened new routes for me to learn more about the systems under study at Instituto de Matemáticas, Unidad Cuernavaca.

I have attended several lectures which were of direct interest for my work. I will in particular try out one of the techniques I learned during one of the mathematical presentations from this week on my favorite problems of interest as soon as I come back to work. There were also other lectures, more on the applied side, which raised interesting mathematical questions which I will consider solving/proving.
