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)
Projected Hartree-Fock (PHF) theory has a long history in quantum chemistry. PHF is here understood as the variational determination of an N-electron broken symmetry Slater determinant that minimizes the energy of a projected state with the correct quantum numbers. The method was actively pursued for several decades but seems to have been abandoned. We here(More)
The influence of the third molars on mandibular incisor crowding has been extensively studied but remains controversial. The purpose of this study was to ascertain whether, in Mongolian subjects, the lower third molar can affect anterior crowding and/or the inclination of teeth in the lower lateral segments. Panoramic radiographs, 45° oblique cephalograms,(More)
We present a mean-field approach for accurately describing strong correlations via electron number fluctuations and pairings constrained to an active space. Electron number conservation is broken and correct only on average, but both spin and spatial symmetries are preserved. Optimized natural orbitals and occupations are determined by diagonalization of a(More)
Water splitting by artificial catalysts is a critical process in the production of hydrogen gas as an alternative fuel. In this paper, we examine the essential role of theoretical calculations, with particular focus on density functional theory (DFT), in understanding the water-splitting reaction on these catalysts. First, we present an overview of DFT(More)
Our previously developed constrained-pairing mean-field theory (CPMFT) is shown to map onto an unrestricted Hartree-Fock (UHF) type method if one imposes a corresponding pair constraint to the correlation problem that forces occupation numbers to occur in pairs adding to one. In this new version, CPMFT has all the advantages of standard independent particle(More)
The recently proposed constrained-pairing mean-field theory (CPMFT) is here extended to include exchange and correlation effects from density functional theory (DFT) via alternative densities. We transform from alpha and beta spin densities to alternatives based on the total and on-top pair densities. This transformation is needed because CPMFT produces(More)
We have recently proposed a novel approach for obtaining high-spin restricted open-shell Hartree-Fock wave functions by imposing constraints on the unrestricted Hartree-Fock (UHF) method [T. Tsuchimochi and G. E. Scuseria, J. Chem. Phys. 133, 141102 (2010)]. We here extend these ideas to the case where the constraints are released in an active space but(More)
Our recently proposed constrained-pairing mean-field theory (CPMFT) is here extended to deal with dissociation of electron pairs to nondegenerate orbitals. To achieve this goal, we introduce the concept of asymptotic constraints. This extended CPMFT model can exactly dissociate polyatomic molecules to restricted open-shell atoms or fragments. We present(More)
We present single and double particle-hole excitations in the recently revived spin-projected Hartree-Fock. Our motivation is to treat static correlation with spin-projection and recover the residual correlation, mostly dynamic in nature, with simple configuration interaction (CI). To this end, we introduce the Wick theorem for nonorthogonal determinants,(More)
