Excellent Work, Dan N., on Having His Variational QMC Paper Published in Chemical Physics Letters!

Great job Daniel Nader on having his paper “VMC Optimization of Ultra-Compact, Explicitly-Correlated Wave Functions of the Li Isoelectronic Sequence in Its Lowest 1s2s2p Quartet State” published in Chemical Physics Letters! In this manuscript, Daniel shows how variational Monte Carlo can be used to optimize explicitly-correlated wave functions and satisfy a variety of cusp conditions.
