—We use a collection of Python programs for numerical simulation of liver perfusion. We have an application for semi-automatic generation of a finite element mesh of the human liver from computed tomography scans and for reconstruction of the liver vascular structure. When the real vascular trees can not be obtained from the CT data we generate artificial(More)
The paper deals with modeling the liver perfusion intended to improve quantitative analysis of the tissue scans provided by the contrast-enhanced computed tomography (CT). For this purpose, we developed a model of dynamic transport of the contrast fluid through the hierarchies of the perfusion trees. Conceptually, computed time-space distributions of the(More)
We investigate the nature of the S* excited state in carotenoids by performing a series of pump-probe experiments with sub-20 fs time resolution on spirilloxanthin in a polymethyl-methacrylate matrix varying the sample temperature. Following photoexcitation, we observe sub-200 fs internal conversion of the bright S2 state into the lower-lying S1 and S*(More)
The ground state ab initio CCSD(T) potential curves using various basis sets (aug-cc-pVXZ-PP (X = D, T, Q, 5)) is obtained for the dimers of helium with IIb group metals. The effect of the position of the (mid) bond-functions on the interaction energy is discussed. A Symmetry Adapted Perturbation Theory decomposition of the interaction energy is provided(More)
The comparison of coupled cluster with single and double excitations and with perturbative correction of triple excitations [CCSD(T)] ground state potential curves of mercury with rare gases (RG): HgHe and HgXe, at several levels of theory is presented. The scalar relativistic (REL) effects and spin-orbit coupling effects in the ground state potential(More)
The ground state potential curves of the Zn2, Cd2, and Hg2 dimers calculated at different levels of theory are presented and compared with each other as well as with experimental and other theoretical studies. The calculations at the level of Dirac-Coulomb Hamiltonian (DCH), 4-component spin-free Hamiltonian, nonrelativistic Lévy-Leblond Hamiltonian and at(More)
