    The self-consistent reaction field model developed previously by the authors in the case of single center multipole expansion of the electronic structure of the solute has been extended to the case of a distributed multipole expansion. Three different expansions have been tested and two of them...

    We analyze the performance of gradient-free local density approximation (LDA) and gradient-dependent generalized gradient approximation (GGA) functionals in a density functional theory variational calculations based on the total energy bifunctional (E[ρ[SUB1],ρ[SUB2]]). These...

    The density matrix that leads to a minimum kinetic energy for a given density is considered as a convex superposition of pure states. It is shown that the conditions of stationarity of the kinetic energy and collapse to the given density require that each of the pure state wave functions...

    An expansion of the energy functional in terms of the total number of electrons and the normal coordinates within the canonical ensemble is presented. A comparison of this expansion with the expansion of the energy in terms of the total number of electrons and the external potential leads to new...

    We report an ab initio multireference perturbation theory investigation of the HO2 + H2O + O3 reaction, with particular emphasis on the barrier heights for two possible reaction mechanisms: oxygen abstraction and hydrogen abstraction, which are identified by two distinct saddle points.

    Mixing plays an important role in atmospheric and oceanic flows. It occurs on the small scales, is due to molecular diffusion, and is irreversible. On the other hand, stirring is a kinematic process that enhances mixing but is reversible. Budgets of the available potential energy, which require...

    Density functional approximations for the exchange-correlation energy EDFAxc of an electronic system are often improved by admixing some exact exchange Ex: Exc≊EDFAxc+(1/n)(Ex-EDFAx). This procedure is justified when the error in EDFAxc arises from the λ=0 or exchange end of the...

    Based on the divide-and-conquer method in the density-functional theory, an efficient approach is developed to compute analytically the energy gradients with respect to the nuclear coordinates. Tests performed show that both energy gradients and optimized molecular geometry converge to the...
