The spreading of the quantum-mechanical probability distribution density of D-dimensional hydrogenic orbitals is quantitatively determined by means of the local information-theoretic quantity of Fisher in both position and momentum spaces. The Fisher information is found in closed form in terms of the quantum numbers of the orbital.
The Fisher divergence (FD) and Jensen-Shannon divergence (JSD) are used in this work with the aim of providing quantitative measures of the discrepancies between two arbitrary D-dimensional distribution functions, the FD being of local character and the JSD of global one. In doing so, the concepts of Fisher information and Shannon entropy associated to a(More)
The utility of the Fisher information measure is analyzed to detect the transition state, the stationary points of a chemical reaction, and the bond breaking/forming regions of elementary reactions such as the simplest hydrogen abstraction and the identity SN2 exchange ones. This is performed by following the intrinsic reaction path calculated at the MP2(More)
Quantifying the dissimilarity among two or more many-electron systems by means of their one-particle densities is a hot topic within the physical applications of the information theory. This is a relevant achievement of the so-called "divergence measures," for which several definitions have been considered, each one with its own advantages and difficulties.(More)
The Fisher-Shannon and LMC shape complexities and the Shannon-disequilibrium, Fisher-Shannon and Fisher-disequilibrium information planes, which consist of two localization-delocalization factors, are computed in both position and momentum spaces for the one-particle densities of 90 selected molecules of various chemical types, at the CISD/6-311++G(3df,2p)(More)
The relative structural location of a selected group of 27 sulfonamide-like molecules in a chemical space defined by three information theory quantities (Shannon entropy, Fisher information, and disequilibrium) is discussed. This group is composed of 15 active bacteriostatic molecules, 11 theoretically designed ones, and para-aminobenzoic acid. This(More)
Heisenberg-like and Fisher-information-based uncertainty relations which extend and generalize previous similar expressions are obtained for N-fermion d-dimensional systems. The contributions of both spatial and spin degrees of freedom are taken into account. The accuracy of some of these generalized spinned uncertainty-like relations is numerically(More)
In this work we undertake a pioneer information-theoretical analysis of 18 selected amino acids extracted from a natural protein, bacteriorhodopsin (1C3W). The conformational structures of each amino acid are analyzed by use of various quantum chemistry methodologies at high levels of theory: HF, M062X and CISD(Full). The Shannon entropy, Fisher information(More)
The Fisher–Shannon and LMC shape complexities and the Shannon–disequilibrium, Fisher–Shannon and Fisher–disequilibrium information planes, which consist of two localization–delocalization factors, are computed in both position and momentum spaces for the one-particle densities of 90 selected molecules of various chemical types, at the CISD/6-311++G(3df,2p)(More)
Information-theoretic measures are employed to describe the course of a three-center chemical reaction in terms of detecting the transition state and the stationary points unfolding the bond-forming and bond-breaking regions which are not revealed in the energy profile. The information entropy profiles for the selected reactions are generated by following(More)
