Author Biography


About the Author

Prof. Dr. Markus Reiher obtained his PhD in Theoretical Chemistry in 1998, working in the group of Juergen Hinze at the University of Bielefeld. Since this time he has been working in relativistic many-electron theory. He completed his habilitation in Theoretical Chemistry at the University of Erlangen-Nuremberg in the group of Bernd Artur Hess in 2002. From 2003 to 2005, he was lecturer at the University of Bonn and then moved to the University of Jena as Professor for Physical Chemistry in 2005. Since the beginning of 2006 he has been Professor for Theoretical Chemistry at ETH Zurich. Markus Reiher's research interests are diverse and cover many topics in molecular physics and chemistry. His work has been awarded different prizes.

Dr. Alexander Wolf studied physics at the University of Erlangen-Nuremberg and Imperial College, London. In 2004, he earned his PhD in Theoretical Chemistry working with Bernd Artur Hess in Erlangen. His PhD thesis elaborated on the generalized Douglas-Kroll-Hess transformation and efficient decoupling schemes for the Dirac Hamiltonian. Afterwards he worked as as postdoc in the group of Markus Reiher at the universities of Bonn (2004) and Jena (2005). His main research interest is relativistic quantum chemsitry and, in particular, two-component Hamiltonians. Since 2006 he has been engaged in financial risk management for various consultancies.
