Abstract. A new algorithm for density-functional-theory-based ab initio molecular dynamics simulations is presented. The Kohn–Sham orbitals are expanded in Gaussian-type functions and an augmented-plane-wave-type approach is used to represent the electronic density. This extends previous work of ours where the density was expanded only in plane waves. We describe the total density in a smooth extended part which we represent in plane waves as in our previous work and parts localised close to… Expand
All-electron ab-initio molecular dynamics
We present an all-electron implementation of the Gaussian and augmented plane wave density functional method (GAPW method), which allows ab-initio density functional calculations for periodic andExpand
Quickstep: Fast and accurate density functional calculations using a mixed Gaussian and plane waves approach
It is shown how derivatives of the GPW energy functional, namely ionic forces and the Kohn–Sham matrix, can be computed in a consistent way and the computational cost is scaling linearly with the system size, even for condensed phase systems of just a few tens of atoms. Expand
Accurate molecular integrals and energies using combined plane wave and Gaussian basis sets in molecular electronic structure theory
This paper introduces two developments for the application of plane wave basis sets for accurate molecular calculations. (1) An analytical formula is introduced for the momentum space representationExpand
Inner-shell spectroscopy by the Gaussian and augmented plane wave method.
An approach for calculating near-edge X-ray absorption spectra at the density functional theory level, which is suited for condensed matter simulations and the straightforward extension of the method to condensed matter is demonstrated by the calculation of the C K-edge in diamond. Expand
Projector Augmented Wave Method Incorporated into Gauss-Type Atomic Orbital Based Density Functional Theory.
An approach to incorporate the Projector Augmented Wave method into the Gauss-type function (GTF) based DFT implementation, which is widely used for molecular quantum chemistry calculations, is presented. Expand
Ab initio molecular dynamics calculations with simple, localized, orthonormal real-space basis sets
Ah initio molecular dynamics, in which finite temperature molecular dynamics is performed with forces obtained from "on the fly" electronic structure calculations, is one of the most widely usedExpand
Ab initio molecular dynamics: Propagating the density matrix with Gaussian orbitals. III. Comparison with Born–Oppenheimer dynamics
In a recently developed approach to ab initio molecular dynamics (ADMP), we used an extended Lagrangian to propagate the density matrix in a basis of atom centered Gaussian functions. Results ofExpand
Grid‐based density functional calculations of many‐electron systems
Exploratory variational pseudopotential density functional calculations are performed for the electronic properties of many-electron systems in the 3D cartesian coordinate grid (CCG). TheExpand
Ab initio molecular dynamics using hybrid density functionals.
This work presents an implementation of the Hartree-Fock exchange that is specifically targeted at ab initio molecular dynamics simulations of medium sized systems, and demonstrates the ability to perform, for several tens of picoseconds, ab initIO molecular dynamics based on hybrid functionals of systems in the condensed phase containing a few thousand Gaussian basis functions.

Ab initio molecular dynamics: Propagating the density matrix with Gaussian orbitals
We propose and implement an alternative approach to the original Car–Parrinello method where the density matrix elements (instead of the molecular orbitals) are propagated together with the nuclearExpand
