  1. Coupled Cluster Methods for Multi-Reference Applications

    SBC: ACES QC, LC            Topic: AF09BT40

    The objective of Phase I is to identify the strengths and weaknesses of the various multi-reference coupled-cluster (MRCC) methods that have been proposed for the description of molecular states depending upon near degeneracies and non-dynamic electron correlation. Such effects are encountered in bond breaking, at transition states, for complex open shell systems like transition metal atoms, and f ...

  9. Implementation of Facility Models Using Neural Networks for Improved Control of Wind Tunnels

    SBC: INNOVATIVE TECH APPLICATIONS LLC            Topic: AF09BT16

    Test facilities such as wind tunnels require stringent control of test parameters such as wind speed, temperature, pressure, etc., in order to satisfy the objectives of the simulation. Control of test facilities can be significantly improved using mathematical models for the facility behavior that are developed from physical principles. A shortcoming of mathematical control models is that they t ...
