Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


A new reciprocal space based formalism for treating long range forces in clusters is presented. It will be shown how the new formalism can be incorporated into plane-wave based density function theory calculations, standard Ewald summation calculations, and smooth particle-mesh Ewald calculations to yield accurate and numerically efficient descriptions of long range interactions in cluster systems.
