Deterministic global optimization of molecular structures using interval analysis

Abstract

The search for the global minimum of a molecular potential energy surface is a challenging problem. The molecular structure corresponding to the global minimum is of particular importance because it usually dictates both the physical and chemical properties of the molecule. The existence of an extremely large number of local minima, the number of which may… (More)
