Can Schrodinger's Equation predict steric clashes

  1. Jan 6, 2016 #1
    Hi All:
    My name is Ben, and l am new to the forum. Currently doing a Med Degree, but already have an Engineering Degree and Masters.
    With all Schrodinger's equation is able to do, could it also predict and model the steric clashes of functional groups in multi domain proteins, or enzymes?

    For all practical purposes no, although it would be possible in theory.

    What if, l construct a series of Schrodinger's equations, with the probability distribution when the two molecules are in steric hindrance at 1. I am currently looking at only the "active sites" of the proteins and enzymes. I will need the NASA super computer to do the calcs. :)
