Guide to precision calculations in Dyson{close_quote}s hierarchical scalar field theory
The goal of this article is to provide a practical method to calculate, in a scalar theory, accurate numerical values of the renormalized quantities which could be used to test any kind of approximate calculation. We use finite truncations of the Fourier transform of the recursion formula for Dyson{close_quote}s hierarchical model in the symmetric phase to perform highprecision calculations of the unsubtracted Green{close_quote}s functions at zero momentum in dimension 3, 4, and 5. We use the wellknown correspondence between statistical mechanics and field theory in which the large cutoff limit is obtained by letting {beta} reach a critical value {beta}{submore » 
Electroncapture decay rate of {sup 7}BeC{sub 60} by firstprinciples calculations based on density functional theory
Carrying out a firstprinciples calculation assuming linear relationship between the electron density at Be nucleus and the electroncapture (EC) decay rate, we explained why {sup 7}BeC{sub 60} shows higher EC decay rate than {sup 7}Be crystal, which was originally found experimentally by Ohtsuki et al. [Phys. Rev. Lett. 93, 112501 (2004)]. From the results of the calculation, we found that there are inequivalent four stable (i.e., lower energy) Be sites inside C{sub 60} and that center of C{sub 60} (C{sub C60}) is the most favorable site. For C{sub C60}, the electron density at the Be nucleus is the highest. Itmore » 
Comparison of quasiclassical, transition state theory, and quantum calculations of rate constants and activation energies for the collinear reaction X + F/sub 2/. >. XF + F (X = Mu, H, D, T)
Accurate quantum total reaction probabilities for the collinear reaction X + F/sub 2/ (upsilon = 0.1) ..>.. XF + F (X = Mu, H, D, T) have been used to calculate collinear rate constants and activation energies. Comparison is made with collinear quasiclassical trajectory calculations and transition state theory assuming classical motion along a separable reaction coordinate and vibrational adiabaticity. Considerable differences between the quantum and quasiclassical and transition state theory results are found only for the Mu reaction at low temperatures. 5 figures, 35 references, 6 tables. 
Comparison of variational transition state theory and quantum sudden calculations of threedimensional rate coefficients for the reactions D(H)+BrH. >. DBr(HBr)+H
We calculate rate coefficients for the threedimensional reactions H+BrH ..>.. HBr+H and D+BrH ..>.. DBr+H using two different dynamical methods but with the same potential energy surface. One method is a threedimensional quantum mechanical technique in which the energy sudden approximation is used for the entrance reaction channel and the centrifugal sudden approximation is applied to the exit reaction channel. The second method is improved canonical variational transition state theory with smallcurvaturetunneling semiclassical adiabatic groundstate transmission coefficients. The potential energy surface is an empirically adjusted diatomicsinmolecules surface which has a very narrow barrier to reaction. The rate coefficients predicted bymore »
