Computational Nuclear Physics and Post HartreeFock Methods
Abstract
We present a computational approach to infinite nuclear matter employing HartreeFock theory, manybody perturbation theory and coupled cluster theory. These lectures are closely linked with those of chapters 9, 10 and 11 and serve as input for the correlation functions employed in Monte Carlo calculations in chapter 9, the inmedium similarity renormalization group theory of dense fermionic systems of chapter 10 and the Green's function approach in chapter 11. We provide extensive code examples and benchmark calculations, allowing thereby an eventual reader to start writing her/his own codes. We start with an objectoriented serial code and end with discussions on strategies for porting the code to present and planned highperformance computing facilities.

Computational methods in engineering and science, with applications to fluid dynamics and nuclear systems
Comprehensive coverage of computational methods for differential equations in engineering and science is provided. Three categories of computational methods, the finite difference method, the finite element method, and the statistical (Monte Carlo) method, provide numerical solutions of eigenvalue problems of ordinary differential equations, elliptic partial differential equations, and parabolic and hyperbolic partial differential equations. Comprehension of materials rather than mathematical rigor is emphasized. The fundamentals of the necessary numerical methods are reviewed and the following are described: Finite difference methods for SturmLiouville eigenvalue problems; elliptic and parabolic partial differential equations; finite difference methods for fluid flow; weighted residual methods andmore » 
Homogeneous Ni catalysts for H2 Oxidation and Production: An Assessment of Theoretical Methods, from Density Functional Theory to Post HartreeFock Correlated WaveFunction Theory
A systematic assessment of theoretical methods applicable to the accurate characterization of catalytic cycles of homogeneous catalysts for H2 oxidation and evolution is reported. For these catalysts, H2 bond breaking or formation involve dihydrogen, dihydride, hydrideproton, and diproton complexes. The key elementary steps have heterolytic character. In the context of Density Functional Theory (DFT) we investigated the use of functionals in the generalized gradient approximation (GGA) as well as hybrid functionals. We compared the results with wavefunction theories based on perturbation theory (MP2 and MP4) and on coupledcluster expansions (CCSD and CCSD(T)). Our findings suggest that DFT results based onmore »
