Fractional Charge by Fixed-Node Diffusion Monte Carlo Method.

Summary of "Fractional Charge by Fixed-Node Diffusion Monte Carlo Method."

Fixed-node diffusion Monte Carlo (FNDMC) method is a stochastic quantum many-body approach that has a great potential in electronic structure theory. We examine how FNDMC total energy E(N) satisfies exact constraints, linearity and derivative discontinuity, versus fractional electron number N, if combined with mean-field trial wave functions that miss such features. H and Cl atoms with fractional charge reveal that FNDMC method is well able to restore the piecewise linearity of E(N). The method uses ensemble and projector ingredients to achieve the correct charge localization. A water-solvated Cl^{-} complex illustrates superior performance of FNDMC method for charged noncovalent systems.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

In statistics, a technique for numerically approximating the solution of a mathematical problem by studying the distribution of some random variable, often generated by a computer. The name alludes to the randomness characteristic of the games of chance played at the gambling casinos in Monte Carlo. (From Random House Unabridged Dictionary, 2d ed, 1993)

An atom or group of atoms that have a positive or negative electric charge due to a gain (negative charge) or loss (positive charge) of one or more electrons. Atoms with a positive charge are known as CATIONS; those with a negative charge are ANIONS.

A method which uses specific precipitation reactions to separate or collect substances from a solution.

The local lymph node assay (LLNA) is an alternative method for the identification of chemicals that have the ability to cause skin sensitization and allergic contact dermatitis. Endpoints have been established so fewer animals are required and less painful procedures are used.

A diagnostic technique that incorporates the measurement of molecular diffusion (such as water or metabolites) for tissue assessment by MRI. The degree of molecular movement can be measured by changes of apparent diffusion coefficient (ADC) with time, as reflected by tissue microstructure. Diffusion MRI has been used to study BRAIN ISCHEMIA and tumor response to treatment.
