    A recently proposed dynamical method [A. Laio and M. Parrinello, Proc. Natl. Acad. Sci. U.S.A. 99, 12562 (2002)] allows us to globally sample the free energy surface. This approach uses a coarse-grained non-Markovian dynamics to bias microscopic atomic trajectories. After a sufficiently long...

    With the help of nonempirical quantum-chemical approximations we have studied the conformational equilibria in a series of 4-substituted 1,3,2-dioxaborinanes. It is shown that the route includes minima corresponding to the equatorial and axial sofa forms, and maxima corresponding to the...

    Quantum-chemical study on the potential energy surface of 5-alkyl- and 5-phenyl-1,3-dioxanes at the RHF/6-31G( d) level of theory revealed two pathways for conformational isomerizations of the equatorial and axial chair conformers. Potential barriers to this process were estimated. The Gibbs...

    Understanding molecular conformation is a first step in understanding the waxing (or formation of crystals) of petroleum fuels. In this work, we study the molecular conformation of typical fuel oils modeled as pure n-alkanes. A multi-scale global optimization methodology based on terrain methods...

    The article focuses on the conformational analysis of perhydro-1,3,5-dioxazines. It says that the interest in perhydro-1,3,5-dioxazines which are saturated heteroanalogs of cyclohexane that have three seheteroatoms parated by carbon is linked to specificities of their structure distinguished by...

    Associative memory Hamiltonian structure prediction potentials are not overly rugged, thereby suggesting their landscapes are like those of actual proteins. In the present contribution we show how basin-hopping global optimization can identify low-lying minima for the corresponding mildly...
