The optimization and control of surface chemistry is important for material growth and interfacial structure. Computational methods provide new insights at the atomic and electronic structure levels that enhance our understanding of key aspects of surface chemistry. This presentation will review the evolution of some widely used computational methods and discuss their integration with experimental techniques. Illustrative applications in surface chemistry will be discussed within the context of layered or two-dimensional materials, carbide-derived carbon materials, and liquid-solid interfaces.
