We investigate the excited-state decay processes for the 3-(2-cyano-2- phenylethenyl-Z)-NH-indole (CPEI) in the solid phase through combined quantum mechanics and molecular mechanics (QM/MM) and vibration correlation formalisms for radiative and nonradiative decay rates, coupled with time-dependent density functional theory (TDDFT). By comparing the(More)
Scalar replacement is a transformation that replaces references to arrays with sequences of scalar temporaries to effect register allocation of array values. Scalar replacement algorithms with varying degrees of power have been proposed [1, 2, 3]. However, no study has been done to show what degree of power is necessary in practice. Are simple algorithms(More)
The unique importance of the cyclopropenylidene molecule conveys significance to its low-lying isomers. Eleven low-lying electronic triplet stationary points as well as the two lowest singlet structures of C(3)H(2) have been systematically investigated. This research used coupled cluster (CC) methods with single and double excitations and perturbative(More)
In general, optical emission in the solid-state is red-shifted with respect to the solution phase. A series of recently synthesized compounds exhibits aggregation induced blue-shifted emission (AIBSE) phenomena. By employing a polarizable continuum model (PCM) and a hybrid quantum mechanics/molecular mechanics (QM/MM) approach, we investigate the(More)
Register allocation is a vital stage in compiler optimization. It greatly impacts the effectiveness of other compiler optimization techniques. Graph coloring is the commonly used mechanism for register allocation. Since graph coloring is an NP-complete problem, heuristics are needed to find a practical solution. Several heuristics are available that perform(More)
This study establishes the relationship between the graphene oxide (GO) colloidal behavior and the co-adsorption of Cd(II) and phosphate (P(V)) on GO. Results reveal that the interactions among GO, Cd(II), and P(V) exhibit a significant dependence on solution chemistry and addition sequences and that these interactions subsequently affect the GO colloidal(More)
Maier et al. found that photolysis of singlet cyclopropenylidene (1S) in a matrix yields triplet propargylene (2T), which upon further irradiation is converted to singlet propadienylidene (vinylidenecarbene, 3S). Their discovery was followed by interstellar identification of 3S by Cernicharo et al. An accurate quartic force field for propadienylidene (3S)(More)
