Advances in theory and algorithms for electronic structure calculations must be incorporated into program packages to enable them to become routinely used by the broader chemical community. This work reviews advances made over the past five years or so that constitute the major improvements contained in a new release of the Q-Chem quantum chemistry package,(More)
Q-Chem 2.0 is a new release of an electronic structure program package, capable of performing first principles calculations on the ground and excited states of molecules using both density functional theory and wave function-based methods. A review of the technical features contained within Q-Chem 2.0 is presented. This article contains brief descriptive(More)
We simulate and interpret the photodissociation and recombination of I 2-embedded in CO 2 clusters using a Hamiltonian that accounts for the strong perturbation of the solute electronic structure by the solvent. The calculated product distributions agree well with the experimental results of Lineberger and co-workers. Excited-state dynamics are more(More)
The interaction potentials between the six lowest electronic states of 1, and an arbitrary discrete charge distribution are calculated approximately using a one-electron model. The model potentials are much easier to calculate than ab initio potentials, with the cost of a single energy point scaling linearly with the number of solvent molecules, enabling(More)
