Density functional embedding for molecular systems


Iannuzzi, M; Kirchner, B; Hutter, J (2006). Density functional embedding for molecular systems. Chemical Physics Letters, 421(1-3):16-20.

Abstract

We introduce a density functional based embedding method for the study of molecular systems in condensed phase. Molecular subunits are treated using a standard Kohn-Sham method together with an embedding potential derived from orbital-free density functional theory, by using kinetic energy functionals. The method leads to a linear scaling electronic structure approach that maps naturally onto massively parallel computers. The application of the method for a molecular dynamics simulation of water at ambient conditions results in a liquid with unstructured second solvation shell.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
