Leveraging the Super Instruction Architecture to Develop Massively Parallel Computational and Environmental Chemistry Applications

  title={Leveraging the Super Instruction Architecture to Develop Massively Parallel Computational and Environmental Chemistry Applications},
  author={Jason N. Byrd and Stephen E. Masters and Douglas S. Burns and Victor F. Lotrich and Beverly A. Sanders},
  journal={arXiv: Chemical Physics},
The task of developing high performing parallel software must be made easier and more cost effective in order to fully exploit existing and emerging large scale computer systems for the advancement of science. The Super Instruction Architecture is a parallel programming platform geared towards applications that need to manage large amounts of data stored in potentially sparse multidimensional arrays during calculations. The SIA platform was originally designed for the Quantum Chemistry software…

Contracted Gaussian basis sets for molecular calculations. I. Second row atoms, Z=11–18

Contracted Gaussian basis sets for molecular calculations are derived from uncontracted (12,8) and (12,9) sets for the neutral second row atoms, Z=11–18, and for the negative ions P−, S−, and Cl−.

Coupled-cluster theory in quantum chemistry

Today, coupled-cluster theory offers the most accurate results among the practical ab initio electronic-structure theories applicable to moderate-sized molecules. Though it was originally proposed

Self‐consistent molecular orbital methods. XX. A basis set for correlated wave functions

A contracted Gaussian basis set (6‐311G**) is developed by optimizing exponents and coefficients at the Mo/ller–Plesset (MP) second‐order level for the ground states of first‐row atoms. This has a
