    There is an interesting dichotomy between models that predict the quick phase interval durations (QPIDs) of human optokinetic nystagmus (OKN). Accumulator models describe a stochastic signal in a neural network that triggers a response once the signal reaches a fixed threshold value. However, it...

    Soft molecular electrostatic potentials (SMEP or SEMP) have been recently defined substituting the point-like proton by a Gaussian positive charge distribution. In the present paper an additional step is taken forward, transforming SMEP into a completely soft MEP (CoSMEP). Such transformation is...

    We investigated the changes in electronic structures induced by chemical functionalization of the five smallest diamondoids using valence photoelectron spectroscopy.

    We discuss the application of multishift linear system solvers to linear-response time-dependent density functional theory. Using this technique the complete frequency-dependent electronic density response of finite systems to an external perturbation can be calculated at the cost of a single...

    A new method has been developed to generate bending angle trials to improve the acceptance rate and the speed of configurational-bias Monte Carlo. Whereas traditionally the trial geometries are generated from a uniform distribution, in this method we attempt to use the exact probability density...

    Real time, density matrix based, time dependent density functional theory (TDDFT) proceeds through the propagation of the density matrix, as opposed to the Kohn-Sham orbitals. It is possible to reduce the computational workload by imposing spatial cutoff radii on sparse matrices, and the...
