Here, we provide a few examples of scientific orientations liable to be pursued as part of the "Computational Physics and Chemistry" M2 programme. The "computational" UEs are indicated in italics. PLEASE NOTE: certain UEs listed below are in the process of being created and are therefore not necessarily immediately available. Do not hesitate to contact the M2 programme directors for more information.
