Q-Chem Webinar 67: Projection-based Quantum Mechanical Embedding Methods in Q-Chem

October 13, 2022

Modeling of the environment plays an essential role in computational studies of chemical processes in realistic condensed-phase systems. Projection-based embedding theory provides a robust and formally exact approach to incorporating the environment quantum mechanically. Q-Chem Webinar 67, presented by Yuezhi Mao, discusses the theory underlying his Q-Chem implementation of the DFT-in-DFT and WFT-in-DFT embedding schemes, the techniques available for the robust partition of occupied spaces… Read More

Q-Chem Webinar 66: Decoding chemical information from vibrational spectroscopy data: Local vibrational mode theory

September 7, 2022
Computer surrounded by molecules

Local vibrational mode theory is a useful tool for characterizing chemical bonding and weak chemical interactions, and the open-source program LModeA can help! It’s designed to work with quantum chemistry packages, like Q-Chem, as well as measured spectra, to help lend insight to chemical systems from their vibrational spectra. Q-Chem Webinar 66, presented by Elfi Kraka and Marek Friendorf, covers not only the underlying theory that drives these methods, but also demonstrations of… Read More

Most quantum chemistry methods assume that all electrons remain bound to the nuclei, but how do we accurately model situations where this isn't the case? The answer can be found in non-Hermitian quantum chemistry. Interested in learning more? Check out Q-Chem Webinar 65, presented by Thomas Jagau of KU Leuven on August 25, 2022, which is now available for viewing here.
