  1. 1. Nonlocal Correlations in Density Functional Theory

    Author : Henrik Rydberg; [2001]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; bonding; GGA; adhesion; graphene; DFT; exchange; adsorption; LDA; first principles; polarization; vdW; determinants; correlation; graphite; surface states; van der Waals; density-functional theory; physisorption; nonlocal; functional;

    Abstract : In Density Functional Theory, the widely used local and semilocal approximations to the exchange-correlation energy, the local density approximation (LDA) and the generalized gradient approximations (GGAs), lack a physical description of truly nonlocal correlation effects, which are absolutely essential for a proper description of soft matter. A scheme is proposed that provides a basis for systematic improvements beyond LDA and GGA, including correlations at intermediate and long range, giving rise to bonds of pure van der Waals type as well as more intricate, intermediate-range correlation bonds.

  2. 2. Challenges in Enzyme Catalysis - Photosystem II and Orotidine Decarboxylase A Density Functional Theory Treatment

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Fysikum

    Author : Marcus Lundberg; Margareta Blomberg; Per Siegbahn; Jeremy Harvey; [2005]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; photosystem II; oxyl radical; manganese systems; orotidine decarboxylase; reaction mechanism; density functional theory; NATURAL SCIENCES Chemistry Theoretical chemistry Quantum chemistry; NATURVETENSKAP Kemi Teoretisk kemi Kvantkemi;

    Abstract : Possibly the most fascinating biochemical mechanism remaining to be solved is the formation of oxygen from water in photosystem II. This is a critical part of the photosynthetic reaction that makes solar energy accessible to living organisms. READ MORE

  3. 3. Manganese and Iron Heterodimers and Homodimers in Enzymes : Insights from Density Functional Theory

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Department of Physics, Stockholm University

    Author : Katarina Roos; Per Siegbahn; Margareta R. A. Blomberg; Frank Neese; [2012]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Ribonucleotide reductase; manganese; iron; density functional theory; kemisk fysik; Chemical Physics;

    Abstract : The enzyme ribonucleotide reductase (RNR) catalyzes the reduction of ribonucleotides to deoxyribonucleotides, the building blocks of DNA, and is essential for all organisms. Canonical class I RNR R2 proteins use a diiron cofactor to generate a tyrosyl radical, which is required for catalysis. READ MORE
