Bootstrap Embedding: A Fragmentation Approach for Molecules

Chemistry Building, Room 400
Physical Seminar


Abstract: Fragment embedding divides the description of a system into smaller and more cost-friendly pieces for computation. For systems with strong correlation, the challenge is to properly describe the entanglement effect of the environment on the embedded fragment. The recently developed Bootstrap Embedding [JCTC, 15, 4497 (2019)] uses overlapping fragments to improve fragment description at the edges,  and will be reviewed in this talk.
