Ideally, a molecule or a solid should be calculated/modeled using a single numerical method. However, the physical conditions in different parts of a complex molecule may be fairly different, thus requiring different approximations to describe them. The Effective Hamiltonian Crystal Field method is one of the earliest attempts of implementing this idea. This approach singles out the d-shells of transition metal complexes and represents an efficient and physically transparent tool for modeling them.

Entanglement dynamics under classical and quantum conditions show remarkable differences. Quantum entanglement has a statistical characters with contribution from all trajectories. Quantum tunneling can reduce entanglement between two coupled particles. The nonlocal nature of quantum entanglement can be observed through the analysis of the contribution of the individual trajectories.
- Geometry of the canonical Van Vleck transformation
Article first published online: 30 SEP 2015 | DOI: 10.1002/qua.24992
Any invertible map from the zeroth-order eigenspace for a perturbation problem to that of the exact eigenvectors defines an effective Hamiltonian. Immediate geometric intuition, founded on the shown simple figure, suggests a projection-mapping, a reflection in a mirror space and a rotation. A fairly recent approach is developed further along such geometric lines by use of a new commutation relation. Several earlier results are reviewed in the light of this development.
- Chemisorption of thiol-functionalized metallocene molecules on Si(111)- Ag√3×√3 surface: A density functional theory study
Sibel Ozkaya and Gokcen Birlik Demirel
Article first published online: 23 SEP 2015 | DOI: 10.1002/qua.25020
The chemical adsorption properties of the thiol-functionalized metallocene molecules on the Si(111)-Ag√3×√3 surface have been theoretically investigated for different bindings models using DFT method. Calculations revealed that the adsorption energies of these metallocene molecules change independently by increasing the radios of inner core metal atoms. Both functional group and metal ion are important for the position of the molecule on the surface.
- Statistical method of generating envelopes of the electronic hot bands
Article first published online: 22 SEP 2015 | DOI: 10.1002/qua.25007
High-precision experimental techniques and advanced quantum chemical calculations may provide information about detailed structure of molecular hot bands. However, in many applications it is sufficient to know the shapes of these spectra, given by their envelopes. The form of these envelopes may be derived in a simple way using methods of statistical spectroscopy.
