Lestrange and Lingerfelt present their research to the Seattle ARCS Foundation

Earlier today, David Lingerfelt and Patrick Lestrange presented their research to the Seattle chapter of the ARCS Foundation. The Advancing Science in America (ARCS) Foundation awards numerous fellowships and scholarships throughout the country every year. David and Patrick joined other fellows with funding from UW’s Clean Energy Institute to present their research while ARCS members […]

Two by Two: New papers on two-component methods are now online

The group has recently been investigating non-collinear two-component methods and two new publications in this area are now online. This is an exciting direction for the group that allows us to model phenomena that is impossible to capture with collinear methods such as restricted and unrestricted Hartree-Fock and DFT. One paper focuses on the linear […]

Modeling X-ray excitations with Coupled Cluster Theory

The recently implemented energy-specific formulation of equation-of-motion coupled cluster theory (ES-EOM-CC) allows for the direct calculation of high energy excitations. It is now possible to calculate Rydberg and core excitations within the coupled cluster framework using solutions to CIS as initial guesses. This technique is also applicable to the partitioned equation-of-motion perturbation theory approach (P-EOM-MBPT2), […]

Congratulations to Dr. Feizhi Ding!

Feizhi now has a newly minted Ph.D. He recently defended his dissertation titled “Towards efficient and accurate description of many-electron problems: developments of static and time-dependent electronic structure methods”. He will soon be moving to California to work with Tom Miller at Cal Tech. Congratulations, Feizhi!
