Complete active space–multiconfiguration self-consistent-field (CAS–MCSCF) followed by configuration interaction calculations, which included up to 250 000 configurations, are carried out on 16 electronic states of Ga4 and In4. Three nearly-degenerate electronic states of 3B3u, 3Au, and 1Ag symmetries with rhombus, square, and square geometries, respectively, are found as candidates for the ground states of Ga4 and In4. The tetramers of Ga and In are bound by 1.2 and 1 eV, respectively, compared to the trimers.

    Ab initio self-consistent field (SCF) and MP2 calculations have been performed in order to investigate the structure, energetics, and spectroscopic properties of H2O: (HF)2. Two conformations of the 1:2 complex are energetically possible. On the one hand is a cyclic complex belonging to the C1...

    Melts of semiflexible AB diblock copolymers are studied using the wormlike chain model and self-consistent-field theory. The diblocks considered here are symmetric in composition and in A- and B-block flexibility. Under these conditions, the microstructure formed is lamellar. We find that an...
