This volume contains the lectures given at the theoretical chemistry workshop in 1996 in Mariapfarr, Austria. At the first meeting Brian Sutcliffe discussed the connection of the concept of potential energy surfaces and the Born-Oppenheimer approximation, Alexander Sax gave an overview of the basic concepts and the mathematical apparatus of hypersurfaces, Ralph Jaquet discussed the fitting of calculated energy values in order to obtain analytical representations of potential energy surfaces, Philippe Hunenberger presented empirical force fields, and Markus Klein showed how the Born-Oppenheimer expansion is seen from the mathematical point of view.
