A simulation protocol based on fragment molecular orbital−based molecular dynamics (FMO-MD) was applied to a droplet model consisting of a divalent copper ion and 64 water molecules. The total energy and forces were evaluated at the unrestricted Hartree-Fock (UHF) level with three-body fragment correction (FMO3). Two MD runs were performed: one with a six-coordination setting and the other with a five-coordination setting in the first hydration shell. Both runs resulted in the main peak position of the Cu-O radial distribution function at 2.02 Å, in reasonable agreement with the experimental data. The O-Cu-O angular distribution function showed different characteristics between the two cases.
We have developed a couple of optimal damping algorithms (ODAs) for unrestricted Hartree-Fock (UHF) calculations of open-shell molecular systems. A series of equations were derived for both concurrent and alternate constructions of α and β Fock matrices in the integral-direct self-consistent-field (SCF) procedure. Several test calculations were performed to check the convergence behaviors. It was shown that the concurrent algorithm provides better performance than does the alternate one.

July 27, 2015 There had been a system trouble (from July 26‚ 2015 15:25 to July 27‚ 2015 1:00 (GMT)). The service has been back to normal.
July 15, 2015 A new online journal "Mechanical Engineering Letters" has been launched by The Japan Society of Mechanical Engineers (JSME). This publication of such a letter journal is not only a new experience but also a tremendous challenge for the mechanical engineering society.
