Open Access research with a real impact on health...

The Strathprints institutional repository is a digital archive of University of Strathclyde's Open Access research outputs. Strathprints provides access to thousands of Open Access research papers by Strathclyde researchers, including by researchers from the Physical Activity for Health Group based within the School of Psychological Sciences & Health. Research here seeks to better understand how and why physical activity improves health, gain a better understanding of the amount, intensity, and type of physical activity needed for health benefits, and evaluate the effect of interventions to promote physical activity.

Abstract

Three-dimensional discrete tensor wavelets are applied to calculate wave functions of excess electrons solvated in polar liquids. Starting from the Hartree-Fock approximation for the electron wave functions and from the linear response to the solute charge for the solvent, we have derived the approximate free energy functional for the excess electrons. The orthogonal Coifman basis set is used to minimize the free energy functional and to approximate the electron wave functions. The scheme is applied to the calculation of the properties of the solvated electron and the singlet bipolaron formation. The obtained results indicate that the proposed algorithm is fast and rather efficient for calculating the electronic structure of the solvated molecular solutes.
