Check out our most recent paper in JCTC, describing out new implementation of multiple spawning dynamics: PySpawn. PySpawn is an implementation of ab initio multiple spawning (AIMS) in Python 2.7. It is designed to take advantage of modern computational resources and to be easily linked to electronic structure packages carry out ab initio multiple spawning (AIMS) calculations. It is free and open source, and can be downloaded here.
Moving to Stony Brook
Perhaps this announcement is a little late, but our group will be moving to Stony Brook University in August! We’ll be associated with the Department of Chemistry and Institute for Advanced Computational Sciences there. Our friends and colleagues at MSU will be dearly missed, but we are very excited about the new opportunities that SBU presents.
Thanks to NSF for Funding
Many thanks to the National Science Foundation Chemical Theory, Modelling, and Computation (CTMC) program for funding our project to develop theoretical methods for modeling the dynamics of molecules in strong laser fields!
