ABSTRACT
Standard density-functional theory integration grids have proven insufficient for the meta generalized gradient approximation description of weakly bound complexes [E. R. Johnson et al., Chem. Phys. Lett. 394, 334 (2004)]. This is caused by an insufficient radial resolution in the valence region of frequently used standard grids. We present an algorithm for the construction of locally augmented radial grids, which allows us to enhance the resolution of a given radial grid in a specified region, thus increasing the accuracy of the standard grid in a cost-efficient way. Test calculations with the Van Voorhis-Scuseria exchange and correlation functional for the Ar dimer confirm that a suitably constructed, locally augmented radial grid with 100 points provides an accuracy competitive to that of a 250-point nonaugmented grid. Time savings and possible applications for locally augmented radial grids are discussed.

    We propose a general model for the spherically averaged exchange hole corresponding to a generalized gradient approximation (GGA) exchange functional. Parameters are reported for several common GGAs. Our model is based upon that of Ernzerhof and Perdew [J. Chem. Phys. 109, 3313 (1998)]. It...

    The first-principles method and the evolutionary algorithm are used to identify stable high pressure phases of potassium azide (KN3). It has been verified that the stable phase with space group I4/mcm below 22 GPa, which is consistent with the experimental result, will transform into the C2/m...

    The linear mixing model has been considered previously in most of the researches which are devoted to the blind source separation (BSS) problem. In practice, a more realistic BSS mixing model should be the non-linear one. In this paper, we propose a non-linear BSS method, in which a two-layer...
