A few weeks ago, on 23rd November, I was invited to speak at the mathematics and chemistry seminar (GdT mathématiques et chimie) at Sorbonne Université in Paris. This seminar is a joint meeting of theoretical chemists and mathematicians from the LJLL (Laboratoire Jacques-Louis Lions) and the LCT (Laboratoire de Chimie …

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 …

Last week from 18th till 23rd June I attended the 16th International Congress of Quantum Chemistry (ICQC) in Menton, France. Apart from the absolutely stunning scenery at the French Riviera as well as the historic conference building, the conference was a great opportunity to meet up and discuss with people …

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 …
