In this work, we present a novel parallelization scheme for a highly efficient evaluation of the Hartree-Fock exact exchange (HFX) in ab initio molecular dynamics simulations, specifically tailored for condensed phase simulations. Our developments allow one to achieve the necessary accuracy for the evaluation of the HFX in a highly controllable manner. We(More)
A smooth [script-l](1)-norm based function to obtain a sparse representation of the orbital coefficients is introduced. This sparseness function is further parametrized with respect to unitary transformations among the occupied orbitals. Thus the function can be straightforwardly included in an optimization scheme or used on the fly during self-consistent(More)
The hydration thermodynamics of the amino acid X relative to the reference G (glycine) or the hydration thermodynamics of a small-molecule analog of the side chain of X is often used to model the contribution of X to protein stability and solution thermodynamics. We consider the reasons for successes and limitations of this approach by calculating and(More)
In the free energy of hydration of a solute, the chemical contribution is given by the free energy required to expel water molecules from the coordination sphere and the packing contribution is given by the free energy required to create the solute-free coordination sphere (the observation volume) in bulk water. With the simple point charge/extended (SPC/E)(More)
