There has been strong recent interest related to the large spin–orbit coupling in Pb monolayers on various properties of graphene and other 2D-materials. The underlying physical/chemical origin of
Chemistry of the elements at the end of the actinide series using their low-energy ion-beams
Abstract Studies of the chemical properties of the elements at the uppermost end of the Periodic Table are extremely challenging both experimentally and theoretically. One of the most important and

Simulating Effective QED on Quantum Computers
In recent years simulations of chemistry and condensed materials has emerged as one of the preeminent applications of quantum computing, offering an exponential speedup for the solution of the
Free and Open Source Software for Computational Chemistry Education
This work points out the existence of a variety of free and open source software packages for computational chemistry that offer a wide range of functionality all the way from approximate semiempirical calculations with tight-binding density functional theory to sophisticated ab initio wave function methods such as coupled-cluster theory.
Electron Correlation: Nature's Weird and Wonderful Chemical Glue
Prof. Dr. Jan M. L. Martin$ It can be argued that electron correlation, as a concept, deserves the same prominence in general chemistry as molecular orbital theory. We show how it acts as Nature's
Free and Open Source Software for Computational Chemistry Education
It is demonstrated that a decentralized model for teaching computational chemistry is now possible thanks to FOSS computational chemistry packages, enabling students to perform reasonable modeling on their own computing devices, in the bring your own device (BYOD) scheme.


Polarization effects in the positron theory
Some of the consequences of the positron theory for the special case of impressed electrostatic fields are investigated. By imposing a restriction only on the maximum value of the field intensity,
New approach to many-body quantum-electrodynamics calculations: merging quantum electrodynamics with many-body perturbation
A new method for bound-state quantum electrodynamics (QED) calculations on many-electron systems is presented that is a combination of the non-QED many-body technique for quasi-degenerate systems and

Quantum-Electrodynamical Corrections to Energy-Levels of Helium
Quantum-electrodynamical corrections to energy levels of helium are calculated with an accuracy of a5mc~ on the basis of the Bethe-Salpeter equation according to the perturbation method of Fulton and
Leading-order relativistic and radiative corrections to the rovibrational spectrum of H 2 + and H D + molecular ions
High-precision variational calculations for the rovibrational states in the range of the total orbital momentum $L=0--4$ and vibrational quantum number $v=0--4$ for the $\mathrm{H}_{2}{}^{+}$ and
Calculation of radiative corrections to hyperfine splittings in the neutral alkali metals
The radiative correction to hyperfine splitting in hydrogen is dominated by the Schwinger term, {alpha}/2{pi} E{sub F}, where E{sub F} is the lowest-order hyperfine splitting. Binding corrections to
Hyperfine structure of the state of highly charged ions
The `dynamical' model of the hyperfine structure in which the electron is assumed to interact with the valence proton through the exchange of a photon is applied to the state of highly charged ions.
