Local density approximation for a perturbative equation of state
Abstract
Knowledge of a series expansion of the equation of state provides a deep insight into the physical nature of a quantum system. Starting from a generic 'perturbative' equation of state of a homogeneous ultracold gas we make predictions for the properties of the gas in the presence of harmonic confinement. The local density approximation is used to obtain the chemical potential, total and release energies, ThomasFermi size, and density profile of a trapped system in three, two, and onedimensional geometries. The frequencies of the lowest breathing modes are calculated using scaling and sumrule approaches and could be used in an experiment as a highprecision tool for obtaining the expansion terms of the equation of state. The derived formalism is applied to dilute Bose and Fermi gases in different dimensions and to integrable onedimensional models. The physical meaning of the expansion terms in a number of systems is discussed.

We study the groundstate properties of heavy closedshell nuclei such as {sup 48}Ca, {sup 90}Zr, {sup 120}Sn, and {sup 208}Pb as well as {sup 4}He, {sup 16}O, and {sup 40}Ca. Similar to our recent work, the local density approximation in the harmonic oscillator basis and different channeldependent effective twobody interactions that are generated through the lowestorder constrained variational calculation for asymmetric nuclear matter with the Reid68Day, Reid68, and {delta}Reid68 potentials are used. Unlike nuclear matter, it is shown that Reid68 potential gives groundstate binding energies closer to the experimental data with respect to the {delta}Reid68 potential and there is notmore »

Perturbative approximation to hybrid equation of motion coupled cluster/effective fragment potential method
Hybrid quantum mechanics/molecular mechanics (QM/MM) methods provide an attractive way to closely retain the accuracy of the QM method with the favorable computational scaling of the MM method. Therefore, it is not surprising that QM/MM methods are being increasingly used for large chemical/biological systems. Hybrid equation of motion coupled cluster singles doubles/effective fragment potential (EOMCCSD/EFP) methods have been developed over the last few years to understand the effect of solvents and other condensed phases on the electronic spectra of chromophores. However, the computational cost of this approach is still dominated by the steep scaling of the EOMCCSD method. In thismore »
