abstract = {We describe an integral equation method for obtaining the distribution of a nematic fluid near a wall and interacting with a uniform orienting field. Complete density-orientational profiles are calculated for a model nematic with different wall-particle interactions and different orientations of the wall with respect to the field. For orienting walls we identify particular long-range correlations that are responsible for reorientation of the bulk nematic at zero external field. These correlations become stronger as the wall-particle interaction is increased in range; they become longer ranged as the orienting field is weakened. Special attention is focused on systems where the wall-particle interaction favors orientations perpendicular to the surface. The local director orientation can vary discontinuously with the distance from the surface when the orienting influences of the field and the wall are antagonistic. At high densities smectic-like structures appear. Adsorption phenomena are also discussed. For inert hard walls, the ordered fluid avoids the surface, and a surface layer where the particles tend to orient perpendicular to the bulk director appears. Experimentally, this might be seen as wetting of the wall by a less-ordered fluid. (C) 2005 American Institute of Physics.},

In the previous works, we could not obtain the calculated values to the experimental ones of third periodic 2p CEBEs for the molecules within the range of averaged absolute deviation (AAD) of 1.0eV, although the values were calculated by the unrestricted generalized transition-state (uGTS) method. Here, we were able to get the reasonable Si 2p and S 2p CEBEs of 11, and 12 gas molecules in the AAD of 0.37 and 0.46 eV, respectively from the CEBE calculations by the unrestricted generalized diffuse ionization (uGDI) method with a modification of screening constants for third periodic elements of the 2p core-hole. Furthermore, we estimated WD (work function and the other energies) values of seven Si- and S-containing polymers [(Si(CH3)(2))(n) (PDMS), (Si(CH3)(2)O)(n), (PDMSO), (Si(C6H5)CH3)(n) (PMPS), (Si(C6H5)CH3O)(n) (PPMSO), ((CH2CH2)S)(n) (PETHS), ((CH2(CH2)(4)CH2)SO2).

abstract = {The pure rotational spectra of antimony mononitride, SbN, and antimony monophosphide, SbP, have been recorded within the frequency range 6-26 GHz, using a cavity pulsed jet Fourier transform microwave spectrometer. The molecules were prepared by laser ablation of Sb and reaction of the resulting plasma with suitable precursors in the backing gas of the jet. For SbN the J = 1-0 transition was measured for the vibrational ground state of four isotopomers, two of which were also seen in the v = 1 excited state. For SbP the J = 1-0 and 2-1 transitions have been observed for two isotopomers in the ground plus v = 1 and v = 2 excited vibrational states. Accurate spectroscopic constants, including Born-Oppenheimer breakdown terms for Sb and N, have been obtained from the spectra. Precise equilibrium bond lengths r(e) have been determined. Hyper. ne constants including nuclear quadrupole coupling constants and nuclear spin-rotation constants have been evaluated for both molecules, and are compared with the results of density functional calculations.},

abstract = {Although an efficient DFT method using the generalized transition-state model to calculate core-electron binding energies had been successfully applied to over 200 cases, with an average absolute deviation of only 0.21 eV from experiment, a new DeltaE(KS)(PW86-PW91)/cc-pCVTZ model based on total Kohn-Sham energy difference was recently developed. Not only was the model error-free, but also the average absolute deviation for 32 cases studied was found to be 0.15 eV. In this study, we first confirm the excellent performance of such a DeltaE(KS) approach with 46 new cases, with the result that the average absolute deviation from experiment for the 78 cases remains at 0.15 eV. With such consistent accuracy, this new method is applied to the peptide bond. The model molecules studied in this work include formamide, N-methylformamide, N,N-dimethylformamide, acetamide, N-methylacetamide, N,N-dimethylacetamide, and two model dipeptides, one cyclic and one acyclic. The difference in the computed nitrogen core-electron binding energy between the two model dipeptides is found to be 0.85 eV, several times our average absolute deviation. This may be of interest to other workers studying other aspects of the peptide bond.},

abstract = {The interaction of like-charged walls immersed in aqueous solutions with monovalent counterions is investigated at the McMillan-Mayer (MM) level of description. The net pressure acting between the walls is obtained by applying the anisotropic hypernetted-chain theory. The MM approach requires solvent-averaged ion-ion potentials of mean force as input. Results based on "realistic" models for Na+ and Cl- in water are available in the literature and these are used in the present calculations. The wall-wall interactions obtained can differ dramatically from the primitive model (dielectric continuum solvent) case. For some models attractive wall-wall forces are observed at small separations. The MM theory is found to be rather sensitive to details of the counterion-counterion potential of mean force, and different models for the same counterion can give qualitatively different results. At present it is difficult to evaluate the relative accuracy of the different models that have been proposed. However, the results presented here give at least an idea of the interesting possibilities that lie in the physically realistic range. (C) 2000 American Institute of Physics.

The functionals designed by Perdew and Wang (1986 exchange and 1991 correlation) were found to give the best performance with an average absolute deviation from experiment of 0.15 eV. The scaled basis sets did not perform satisfactorily, but it was found that the core-valence correlated cc-pCVTZ basis functions were an excellent alternative to the cc-pV5Z set as they provided equally accurate results and could be applied to larger molecules.

We found that density functional theory (DFT) with Becke{\textquoteright}s exchange functional and Perdew{\textquoteright}s correlation functional can accurately predict the core-electron binding energies (CEBEs) of both molecules. The oxygen 1s {\textendash}> pi* inner-shell excitation spectra (ISES) of both tautomers have also been studied using our DFT procedure. The CEBEs for the corresponding carbons and oxygens of the C=O and C-OH groups of malonaldehyde are larger than those of acetylacetone, The first term values corresponding to a core-hole on the carbonyl oxygen were found to be larger than those with a core-hole on the enol oxygen. The observation indicates that the effect of a core-hole in the proximity of pi*: orbital has a stronger effect on increasing the electron affinity of the core-ionized cation.

abstract = {gamma-Aminopropyltrihydroxysilane (gamma-APS) is a molecule which is used as an adhesion promoter in microelectronics, for the coating of oxidized silicon wafers with polyimide films. The Si/gamma-APS interface has been studied recently using X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy, and evidenced a need for reference spectra of both gamma-APS and its thermal byproducts: as gamma-APS oligomerizes readily upon warming, no gas phase, reference, or XPS spectrum of this compound can be obtained experimentally. Thus, spectral features emerging from Si/gamma-APS interactions are difficult to separate from structural fingerprints of gamma-APS alone, This phenomenon further hinders the follow up by XPS of structural modifications the molecule undergoes upon thermal treatments. A recent procedure of computing very accurate core-electron binding energies (CEBEs) via density functional theory (DFT) is used as a guide to propose a pseudo reference spectrum. The computed CEBEs of the various core levels of the isolated. molecule are found in excellent agreement with the experimental XPS spectra recorded upon spin coating the compound on a silicon wafer at room temperature, with an average absolute deviation (aad) for C Is, Id Is, and O Is levels of only 0,13 eV, i.e., of the order of experimental resolution. The same procedure is then conducted on isolated ionic structures presumably formed when thick gamma-APS layers have undergone thermal treatment in a H2O/CO2 atmosphere, A very bad agreement is found between theory and experiment on these isolated ions, with aad{\textquoteright}s as large as 4.91 V. Upon actually computing the CEBEs on larger molecular models in which (i) ions are paired and then in which (ii) ion pairs are further solvated by one up to four water molecules, the aad reduces to 0,31 eV. We suggest, on the instance of gamma-APS, that (i) the accurate calculation of CEBEs has now come to be a tractable and reliable alternative as a hand for spectrum decomposition when gas-phase reference XPS spectra are not available for calibration and that (ii) the availability of an accurate and tractable theoretical procedure to compute CEBEs, compatible with experimental precision, enables XPS to give some information on intermolecular effects, although this spectroscopy involves core ionizations.},

abstract = {The unrestricted generalized transition-state model using B88/P86 functional with Dunning{\textquoteright}s cc-pV5Z basis set, found to be an excellent method of calculating core-electron binding energies (CEBEs), was further applied to many more molecules, some of which contain atoms from the third period. Estimation of relativistic corrections has also been refined. The average absolute deviation of over 50 calculated CEBEs from experiment is 0.30 eV before inclusion of approximate relativistic corrections (C-rel), and 0.23 eV after adding C-rel. Those molecules with observed CEBEs served to confirm our procedure, whereas the other cases provided our prediction of CEBEs. (C) 1995 American Institute of Physics.},

abstract = {The spectroscopic constants and charge distribution for the ground states of 36 diatomic molecules containing C to F and Si to Cl atoms have been studied with the deMon density functional program, using the local density approximation and large basis sets. For each species, we computed the energy and dipole moment at 13 or more internuclear separations R. These energies were fitted to polynomials in R - R(e) by least squares, with the value of R(e) determined by iteration. The extracted coefficients were used to compute spectroscopic constants. The average absolute deviations from experiment were found to be 0.0084 angstrom for R(e), 29 cm-1 for omega(e), 1.11 cm-1 for omega(e)x(e), 0.59 x 10(-3) cm-1 for alpha(e), and 1.4 eV for D0. The net charges from Mulliken population analysis and the dipole moments for the heteronuclear diatomic molecules are discussed in relationship to the electronegativities of the elements. The average absolute difference between mu(upsilon=0)calc and mu(upsilon=0)obs is 0.15 D. Unusual charge distributions were found in CF, NF, OF, CCl, NCl, and OCl.},

This model exhibits a net polarization at a flat uncharged surface with the positive end of the dipoles inclined into the fluid; the resulting surface potential is compared with both computer simulation and experimental results for the free surface of liquid water. This model also responds differently to positively and negatively charged surfaces, both with and without electrolyte. This leads to an asymmetry in the differential capacitance of the electrical double layer.},

The potentials that are studied are those that result from the transformation of a Fokker-Planck eigenvalue problem to a Schrodinger equation. Linear Fokker-Planck equations of the type considered in this paper give the probability distribution function for a large number of physical situations. The time-dependent solutions can be expressed as a sum of exponential terms with each term characterized by an eigenvalue of the Fokker-Planck operator. The specific Fokker-Planck operator considered is the one that describes the thermalization of electrons in the inert gases. The WKB and SWKB semiclassical approximations are compared with exact numerical results. Although the eigenvalues can be very close to the exact values, we find significant departures for the eigenfunctions.},

abstract = {Density-functional theory is applied to the problem of salt crystallization from solution and explicit results are given for model aqueous alkali-halide systems. Both direct- and Fourier-space methods of calculation are considered and it is found that only the direct (i.e., r space) method converges sufficiently rapidly to provide reliable results for ionic crystals at 25-degrees-C. It is shown that the density-functional method is capable of predicting crystallization, but that the solid-state parameters and, for some salts, the crystal structures obtained are in poor agreement with experiment or computer simulations. The calculated crystal/solution coexistence concentrations are found to be extremely sensitive to the short-range part of the interionic pair potentials. This is consistent with earlier observations that the activity coefficients of model aqueous alkali-halide solutions are very strongly dependent upon the short-range ion-ion interactions. Therefore, we do not believe that this sensitivity to details of the short-range interionic potentials is an artifact of theoretical approximations, but rather a real effect significantly influencing crystallization.},

abstract = {The interaction free energy per unit area between planar walls is given as a convolution of wall-solvent pair-correlation functions. This result, derived from the large radius limit of the macrosphere-solvent Ornstein-Zernike equations, and from the hypernetted-chain closure, provides a statistical-mechanical basis for the Derjaguin approximation, and is both generally applicable and computationally tractable. It is found that the interaction between hard walls in a hard-sphere fluid is oscillatory, and in good agreement with simulations. The van der Waals attraction emerges from asymptotic analyses of Lennard-Jones and dipolar fluids, and the full expression allows calculation of this quantity down to molecular separations. This is demonstrated by numerical results for dipolar fluids.},

abstract = {The Green-function method is a well-known way to reduce the quantum mechanical problem of n electrons moving in the field of clamped nuclei to the problem of solving a one-electron Schrodinger equation (the quasi-particle equation) involving a pseudopotential (the self-energy). This method is widely used in solid-state, low-energy electron-molecule scattering, ionization, and electron attachment theory, and much work has focused on finding accurate self-energy approximations. Unfortunately, the operator nature of the fundamental quantity (Green function) in the usual quasi-particle equation formalism significantly complicates the derivation of self-energy approximations, in turn significantly complicating applications to inelastic scattering and multiconfigurational bound-state problems. For these problems or wherever the operator approach becomes inconvenient, we propose an alternative quasi-particle equation derived wholely within a configuration interaction wave-function formalism and intended to describe the same phenomenology as does the Green function quasi-particle equation. Our derivation refers specifically to electron removal but is readily generalized to electron attachment and scattering. Although the Green function and wave-function quasi-particle equations are different, we emphasize the parallels by rederiving both equations within the equations-of-motion formalism and then producing a wave-function analog of the Green function two-particle-hole Tamm-Dancoff approximation.},
