This study compared the efficacy and safety of fixed-dose combinations (FDCs) of the angiotensin II receptor blocker azilsartan medoxomil (AZL-M) and the thiazide-like diuretic chlorthalidone (CLD) with the individual monotherapies in a double-blind factorial study. A total of 1714 patients with clinic systolic blood pressure (SBP) 160 mm Hg to 190 mm Hg(More)
We describe and systematically analyze new implementations of the Projection Operator Imaginary Time Spectral Evolution (POITSE) method for the Monte Carlo evaluation of excited state energies. The POITSE method involves the computation of a correlation function in imaginary time. Decay of this function contains information about excitation energies, which(More)
We report an ab initio study of the Kondo states formed from a Co adatom on Cu(111) and Cu(100). The model consists of a CoCun cluster ( n = 5-19) embedded in (111) and (100) Cu slabs. An embedding potential derived from density functional theory treats the interaction between the periodic crystal surroundings and the CoCun cluster, while strong electron(More)
Calculations of the electronic structure of solids began decades ago, but only recently have solid-state quantum techniques become sufficiently reliable that their application is nearly as routine as quantum chemistry is for molecules. We aim to introduce chemists to the pros and cons of first-principles methods that can provide atomic-scale insight into(More)
We present new developments on a density-based embedding strategy for the electronic structure of localized feature in periodic, metallic systems [see T. Kluner et al., J. Chem. Phys. 116, 42 (2002), and references therein]. The total system is decomposed into an embedded cluster and a background, where the background density is regarded as fixed. Its(More)
The large-vocabulary name recognition technique is one of the challenging tasks in the application of Chinese speech recognition technology. It can be applied on long-list automatic attendant systems and automatic directory assistance systems. A Chinese name has usually two to three characters with each character pronounced as a single syllable. It is a(More)
Recent measurements of the emission spectrum of phthalocyanine solvated in superfluid helium nanodroplets exhibit a constant 10.3 cm(-1) splitting of each emission line relative to the absorption spectrum. This splitting has been attributed to two distinct helium environments near the surface of the phthalocyanine molecule. Rigid-body path-integral Monte(More)
Embedded correlated wavefunction (ECW) theory is used to characterize the Kondo states formed by Co atoms adsorbed on Ag(111) and Ag(100). Clusters containing the adatom are described with CW theory, while effects of the extended crystal are included via an embedding potential. The predicted Co d-electronic structure, combined with earlier predictions for(More)
