Molecular simulation is explored from the mathematical viewpoint. The ﬁeld comprises computational chemistry and molecular dynamics. A variety of mathematical and numerical questions raised is reviewed. Placing the models and the techniques employed for simulation on a ﬁrm mathematical ground is a difﬁcult task, which has begun decades ago. The time is right for assessing the ﬁeld, and the issues and challenges ahead.
