A summary of the technical advances that are incorporated in the fourth major release of the Q-CHEM quantum chemistry program is provided, covering approximately the last seven years. These include developments in density functional theory methods and algorithms, nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) property evaluation, coupled cluster and perturbation(More)
Graphical processing units are now being used with dramatic effect to accelerate quantum chemistry applications. The authors give a brief introduction to electronic structure methods and describe their efforts to accelerate a correlated quantum chemistry code. They propose and analyze two new tools for accelerating matrix-multiplications where(More)
Giant planets embedded in circumstellar discs are expected to open gaps in these discs. We examine the vertical structure of the gap edges. We find that the planet excites spiral arms with significant (Mach number of a half) vertical motion of the gas, and discuss the implications of these motions. In particular, the spiral arms will induce strong vertical(More)
The Murchison Wide-Field Array (MWA) is a low-frequency radio telescope, currently under construction , intended to search for the spectral signature of the epoch of reionization (EOR) and to probe the structure of the solar corona. Sited in western Australia, the full MWA will comprise 8192 dipoles grouped into 512 tiles and will be capable of imaging the(More)
Many extra-solar planets discovered over the past decade are gas giants in tight orbits around their host stars. Due to the difficulties of forming these 'hot Jupiters' in situ, they are generally assumed to have migrated to their present orbits through interactions with their nascent discs. In this paper, we present a systematic study of giant planet(More)
We present computational results showing eccentricity growth in the inner portions of a protoplanetary disc. We attribute this to the evolving surface density of the disc. The planet creates a gap, which adjusts the balance between the 3:1 (eccentricity exciting) and 2:1 (eccentricity damping) resonances. The eccentricity of the inner disc can rise as high(More)
