TL;DR: In this article, a contracted Gaussian basis set capable of describing about 63% of the correlation energy of N2 has been used in a detailed configuration-interaction calculation, and second-order perturbation theory overestimated the correlated energy by 23-50% depending on how H0 was chosen.

Abstract: A contracted Gaussian basis set capable of describing about 63% of the correlation energy of N2 has been used in a detailed configuration-interaction calculation. Second-order perturbation theory overestimated the correlation energy by 23–50% depending on how H0 was chosen. Pair-pair interaction affects the correlation energy by about 20% while quadruple excitations have an 8% effect.

TL;DR: In this paper, the Hartree-Fock matrix of the supermolecule is used as the basis for the construction of the Fock matrix, and certain blocks of this matrix are set to zero subject to specify boundary conditions of the molecular orbitals, and the resultant matrix is diagonalized iteratively to obtain the desired energy components.

Abstract: A new method is proposed for the analysis of components of molecular interaction energy within the Hartree-Fock approximation. The Hartree-Fock molecular orbitals of the isolated molecules are used as the basis for the construction of Fock matrix of the supermolecule. Then certain blocks of this matrix are set to zero subject to specify boundary conditions of the supermolecule molecular orbitals, and the resultant matrix is diagonalized iteratively to obtain the desired energy components. This method can be considered as an extension of our previous method, but has an advantage in the explicit definition of the charge transfer energy, placing it on an equal footing with the exchange and polarization terms. The new method is compared with existing perturbation methods, and is also applied to the energy and electron density decomposition of (H2O)2.

TL;DR: In this article, the authors provide an overview of plane-wave pseudopotential density functional theory (DFT) methods applicable to studies of large periodic systems and present a number of algorithmic implementations, including ultrasoft pseudopotentials, efficient iterative schemes for solving the one-electron DFT equations, and computationally efficient codes for massively parallel computers.

Abstract: Recent developments in density functional theory (DFT) methods applicable to studies of large periodic systems are outlined. During the past three decades, DFT has become an essential part of computational materials science, addressing problems in materials design and processing. The theory allows us to interpret experimental data and to generate property data (such as binding energies of molecules on surfaces) for known materials, and also serves as an aid in the search for and design of novel materials and processes. A number of algorithmic implementations are currently being used, including ultrasoft pseudopotentials, efficient iterative schemes for solving the one-electron DFT equations, and computationally efficient codes for massively parallel computers. The first part of this article provides an overview of plane-wave pseudopotential DFT methods. Their capabilities are subsequently illustrated by examples including the prediction of crystal structures, the study of the compressibility of minerals, and applications to pressure-induced phase transitions. Future theoretical and computational developments are expected to lead to improved accuracy and to treatment of larger systems with a higher computational efficiency. c 2000 John Wiley & Sons, Inc.

TL;DR: In this article, a linear scaling, fully self-consistent density-functional method for performing first-principles calculations on systems with a large number of atoms, using standard norm-conserving pseudopotentials and flexible linear combinations of atomic orbitals (LCAO) basis sets, was implemented.

Abstract: We have implemented a linear scaling, fully self-consistent density-functional method for performing first-principles calculations on systems with a large number of atoms, using standard norm-conserving pseudopotentials and flexible linear combinations of atomic orbitals (LCAO) basis sets. Exchange and correlation are treated within the local-spin-density or gradient-corrected approximations. The basis functions and the electron density are projected on a real-space grid in order to calculate the Hartree and exchange–correlation potentials and matrix elements. We substitute the customary diagonalization procedure by the minimization of a modified energy functional, which gives orthogonal wave functions and the same energy and density as the Kohn–Sham energy functional, without the need of an explicit orthogonalization. The additional restriction to a finite range for the electron wave functions allows the computational effort (time and memory) to increase only linearly with the size of the system. Forces and stresses are also calculated efficiently and accurately, allowing structural relaxation and molecular dynamics simulations. We present test calculations beginning with small molecules and ending with a piece of DNA. Using double-z, polarized bases, geometries within 1% of experiments are obtained. © 1997 John Wiley & Sons, Inc. Int J Quant Chem 65: 453–461, 1997
