In this post, we explore how useful Scipy's optimization routines are for chemistry applications.
I announce a publication I worked on about low cost density functional theory methods, and use it as motiviation to study various "cheats" in quantum chemistry calculations.
I announce a recent publication I worked on which examines the interactions between the sugar and lignin components of lignocellulose and offer some praise of the OpenBabel toolkit.
I give an overview of a recent publication I worked on which presents a low-cost method to compute electron affinities, ionization potentials, and excitation energies.
I announce a new publication which explores the potential of linear scaling DFT for practical calculations.
