1. Quantum chemistry with Coulomb Sturmians: Construction and convergence of Coulomb Sturmian basis sets at Hartree-Fock level

    This week we submitted a paper related to our ongoing work regarding the use of Coulomb Sturmian basis functions in electronic structure theory. Given the recent progress, which has been made with regards to the evaluation of molecular integrals based on these exponential-type functions, molecular calculations based on Coulomb Sturmians …

  2. Embedding Combined with the Algebraic Diagrammatic Construction: Tackling Excited States in Biomolecular Systems

    Yesterday the journal of chemical theory and computation accepted our manuscript titled Polarizable Embedding Combined with the Algebraic Diagrammatic Construction: Tackling Excited States in Biomolecular Systems. In this work we describe the combination of the polarisable embedding (PE) scheme for including environmental effects with the algebraic-diagrammatic construction (ADC) approach.

    The …

  3. Towards quantum-chemical method development for arbitrary basis functions

    Last week we submitted the molsturm design paper titled Towards quantum-chemical method development for arbitrary basis functions. This manuscript is a condensed summary of the arguments about design and implementation of a basis-function independent self-consistent field scheme (SCF) already presented in my PhD thesis.

    Our approach to a basis-function-independent electronic …

  4. Publication of my PhD thesis

    Finally, after quite some years of work I have successfully defended my PhD thesis with the title Development of a modular quantum-chemistry framework for the investigation of novel basis functions on 22nd May. An electronic version of the text has now been published online.

    To make the topic of my …

  5. Oberwolfach reports: Molsturm modular electronic structure theory framework

    As announced in my previous post about the Oberwolfach workshop on Mathematical Methods in Quantum Chemistry, the proceedings of each Oberwolfach workshop are published in the form of an article in the Oberwolfach reports. For this purpose each speaker is asked for an extended abstract summarising the content of his …
