Basis sets for correlation calculations.
Convergence improvement and intruder state problem in coupled-cluster calculations.
MAIN ACHIEVEMENTS:
Generalized Relativistic Effective Core Potentials (GRECPs) for the atoms Hg through Rn were generated [Tupitsyn:1995, Mosyagin:1997] which accuracy was up to one order of magnitude higher than that of other tested RECPs with the same number of explicitly treated electrons in carried out test calculations [Mosyagin:1997, Mosyagin:2000, Isaev:2000]. Then, the other developments in the GRECP generation were suggested, which allow one to simulate the Breit interaction and Fermi nuclear charge distribution [Petrov:2004, Isaev:2005] as well as the correlations with the core electrons excluded from the GRECP calculations [Mosyagin:2005] by economic way but with very high precision. The generated potentials were used in precise calculations of the spectroscopic constants for the TlH [Titov:2001], HgH [Mosyagin-JCP:2001] and E112H [Mosyagin-JCP:2006] molecules.
The optimal GRECP versions for the Ba, Yb, Tl, Pb, I, Hf, and Xe atoms were generated and employed for calculations of the P,T-odd parameters for the BaF, YbF, TlF, PbO*, HI+, HfF+ molecules [Titov-PRL:1996, Kozlov:1997, Mosyagin-JPB:1998, Petrov:2002, Isaev-PRA:2004, Petrov:2005, Petrov-PRA:2007] and the Xe clusters [Isaev:2007] which are necessary to interpret the results of fundamental experiments carried out in search of parity (P) and time-reversal (T) invariance violation and to plan a new generation of such experiments.
A new procedure for the correlation basis set generation was proposed [Mosyagin:2000, Mosyagin-JCP:2001]. This procedure allows one to generate "equivalent" basis sets for the RECP (two-component) and the all-electron (four-component) calculations and to control efficiently the quality of the basis sets in description of correlations in different space regions. Moreover, the counterpoise corrections for these basis sets are practically undependent on some particular selection of the different valence atomic states for their calculations.
A new iteration scheme for coupled-cluster (CC) calculations was proposed [Mosyagin-JPB:2001] which improves significantly convergence of CC iterations and thus, solves partly the intruder state problem.
