A new implementation of the vibrational self-consistent field (VSCF) method is presented on the basis of a second quantization formulation. A so-called active terms algorithm is shown to be a significant improvement over a standard implementation reducing the computational effort by one order in the number of degrees of freedom. Various types of screening provide even further reductions in computational scaling and absolute CPU time. VSCF calculations on large polyaromatic hydrocarbon model systems are presented. Further, it is demonstrated that in cases where distant modes are not directly coupled in the Hamiltonian, down to linear scaling of the required CPU time with respect to the number of vibrational modes can be obtained. This is illustrated with calculations on simple model systems with up to 1 million degrees of freedom.


Questioning Degree of Accuracy Offered by the Spectral Element Method in Computational Electromagnetics
Mahariq, I.; KURT, HAMZA; Kuzuoğlu, Mustafa (2015-07-01)
In this paper, a comparison amongst the spectral element method (SEM), the finite difference method (FDM), and the first-order finite element method (FEM) is presented. For the sake of consistency, the comparison is carried out on one-dimensional and two-dimensional boundary value problems based on the same measure of error in order to emphasize on the high accuracy gained by the SEM. Then, the deterioration in the accuracy of the SEM due to the elemental deformation is demonstrated. Following this, we try ...

Three-dimensional condensed asymmetrical node, variable grid, transmission-line matrix (TLM) method has been used in analyzing several millimeter waveguides on anisotropic substrates. The dispersion characteristics of image guides together with field and energy confinement properties at millimeter-wave frequencies have been investigated. Edge coupled microstrip line on a uniaxial substrate is analyzed for the even and odd mode dispersion characteristics. Finally the same analysis is repeated for bilateral f...
On-Line Application of SHEM by Particle Swarm Optimization to Grid-Connected, Three-Phase, Two-Level VSCs with Variable DC Link Voltage
Guvengir, Umut; ÇADIRCI, IŞIK; Ermiş, Muammer (2018-08-01)
This paper is devoted to an otablen-line application of the selective harmonic elimination method (SHEM) to three-phase, two-level, grid-connected voltage source converters (VSCs) by particle swarm optimization (PSO). In such systems, active power can be controlled by the phase shift angle, and reactive power by the modulation index, against variations in the direct current (DC) link voltage. Some selected, low-odd-order harmonic components in the line-to-neutral output voltage waveforms are eliminated by c...
Novel quantum description of time-dependent molecular interactions obeying a generalized non-central potential
Menouar, Salah; Choi, Jeong Ryeol; Sever, Ramazan (2018-04-01)
Quantum features of time-dependent molecular interactions are investigated by introducing a time-varying Hamiltonian that involves a generalized non-central potential. According to the Lewis-Riesenfeld theory, quantum states (wave functions) of such dynamical systems are represented in terms of the eigenstates of the invariant operator. Hence, we have derived the eigenstates of the invariant operator of the system using elegant mathematical manipulations known as the unitary transformation method and the Ni...
Evaluation of Hypersingular Integrals on Non-planar Surfaces
Selcuk, Gokhun; Koç, Seyit Sencer (2014-05-16)
Solving electric field integral equation (EFIE) with Nystrom method requires accurate evaluation of hypersingular surface integrals since this method does not use divergence conforming basis and testing functions. The success of the method also depends on accurate representation of non-planar characteristics of the scattering object. In this study Hadamard finite part interpretation is used to evaluate hypersingular integrals over non-planar surfaces, which are represented by their Taylor series expansions....
