Partitionofunity finiteelement method for large scale quantum molecular dynamics on massively parallel computational platforms
Over the course of the past two decades, quantum mechanical calculations have emerged as a key component of modern materials research. However, the solution of the required quantum mechanical equations is a formidable task and this has severely limited the range of materials systems which can be investigated by such accurate, quantum mechanical means. The current state of the art for largescale quantum simulations is the planewave (PW) method, as implemented in now ubiquitous VASP, ABINIT, and QBox codes, among many others. However, since the PW method uses a global Fourier basis, with strictly uniform resolution at all points inmore » 
Algorithm for quantummechanical finitenuclearmass variational calculations of atoms with two p electrons using allelectron explicitly correlated Gaussian basis functions
A new algorithm for calculating the Hamiltonian matrix elements with allelectron explicitly correlated Gaussian functions for quantummechanical calculations of atoms with two p electrons or a single d electron have been derived and implemented. The Hamiltonian used in the approach was obtained by rigorously separating the centerofmass motion and it explicitly depends on the finite mass of the nucleus. The approach was employed to perform test calculations on the isotopes of the carbon atom in their ground electronic states and to determine the finitenuclearmass corrections for these states. 
An algorithm for nonrelativistic quantummechanical finitenuclearmass variational calculations of nitrogen atom in L = 0, M = 0 states using allelectrons explicitly correlated Gaussian basis functions
An algorithm for quantummechanical nonrelativistic variational calculations of L = 0 and M = 0 states of atoms with an arbitrary number of s electrons and with three p electrons have been implemented and tested in the calculations of the ground {sup 4}S state of the nitrogen atom. The spatial part of the wave function is expanded in terms of allelectrons explicitly correlated Gaussian functions with the appropriate preexponential Cartesian angular factors for states with the L = 0 and M = 0 symmetry. The algorithm includes formulas for calculating the Hamiltonian and overlap matrix elements, as well as formulasmore »
