Two applications of the divide & conquer principle in the molecular sciences
One of the most powerful principles for solving complex tasks algorithmically is the so-called Divide& Conquer Principle. It has been applied successfully for an amazingly wide range of problems, from combinatorial optimization to matrix multiplication. Its principal idea is to break up a given complex task T appropriately into a reasonable number of less complex tasks T1 , ... , Tk so that, by "glueing together" appropriately solutions of those less complex tasks, some or even all solutions of the original complex task T can be found.
