Various approximations combining coupled-cluster (CC) and many-body perturbation theories have been derived and implemented into the parallel execution programs that take into account the spin, spatial (real Abelian), and permutation symmetries and that are applicable to closed- and open-shell molecules. The implemented models range from the CCSD(T),(More)
Vertical excitation energies in uracil in the gas phase and in water solution are investigated by the equation-of-motion coupled-cluster and multireference configuration interaction methods. Basis set effects are found to be important for converged results. The analysis of electronic wave functions reveals that the lowest singlet states are predominantly of(More)
New theoretical framework for the method of moments of coupled cluster equations (MMCC) [K. Kowalski and P. Piecuch, J. Chem. Phys. 113, 18 (2000)] that, in a natural way, assures the connected form of the resulting MMCC corrections is discussed. In order to maintain the validity of the proposed expansion in the presence of strong quasidegeneracy effects,(More)
The Horn-Weinstein formula and the variational principle, combined with numerical results for a few many-electron systems, are used to provide support for a conjecture that the exact ground-state wave function for a Hamiltonian system containing up to two-body terms may be represented by an exponential cluster expansion employing a finite two-body operator.
Coupled-cluster methods that include just a subset of all connected triple, quadruple, or both excitation amplitudes, according to the ansatz of and Adamowicz co-workers [Int. Rev. Phys. Chem. 12, 339 (1993); J. Chem. Phys. 99, 1875 (1993); 100, 5792 (1994)] and Piecuch et al. [J. Chem. Phys. 110, 6103 (1999)], have been implemented into parallel execution(More)
An assortment of computer-generated, parallel-executable programs of ab initio electron-correlation methods has been fitted with the ability to use relativistic reference wave functions. This has been done on the basis of scalar relativistic and spin-orbit effective potentials and by allowing the computer-generated programs to handle complex-valued,(More)
Several variants of the equation-of-motion coupled-cluster (EOM-CC) method with singles (one-hole or one-particle), doubles (two-hole-one-particle or two-particle-one-hole), and a selected set of triples (three-hole-two-particle or three-particle-two-hole) and/or quadruples (four-hole-three-particle or four-particle-three-hole) have been implemented by(More)
Kohn-Sham orbital energy patterns were used to rationalize valence electron counts for stable face-capped octahedral clusters [M(6)E(8)L(6)] (E=S, Se, Te, Cl; L=CO, PMe(3), Cl(-)). When L is a pi acceptor such as CO or PMe(3), stable closed-shell clusters are found for 80, 84, and 98 electrons. For L=Cl(-) (i.e. a pi-electron donor), only a count of 84(More)
