    A summary of the technical advances that are incorporated in the fourth major release of the Q-Chem quantum chemistry program is provided, covering approximately the last seven years. These include developments in density functional theory methods and algorithms, nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) property evaluation, coupled cluster and perturbation theories, methods for electronically excited and open-shell species, tools for treating extended environments, algorithms for walking on potential surfaces, analysis tools, energy and electron transfer modelling, parallel computing capabilities, and graphical user interfaces. In addition, a selection of example case studies that illustrate these capabilities is given. These include extensive benchmarks of the comparative accuracy of modern density functionals for bonded and non-bonded interactions, tests of attenuated second order M√łller‚ÄďPlesset (MP2) methods for intermolecular interactions, a variety of parallel performance benchmarks, and tests of the accuracy of implicit solvation models. Some specific chemical examples include calculations on the strongly correlated Cr2 dimer, exploring zeolite-catalysed ethane dehydrogenation, energy decomposition analysis of a charged ter-molecular complex arising from glycerol photoionisation, and natural transition orbitals for a Frenkel exciton state in a nine-unit model of a self-assembling nanotube

    Software for the frontiers of quantum chemistry:An overview of developments in the Q-Chem 5 package

    This article summarizes technical advances contained in the fifth major release of the Q-Chem quantum chemistry program package, covering developments since 2015. A comprehensive library of exchange‚Äďcorrelation functionals, along with a suite of correlated many-body methods, continues to be a hallmark of the Q-Chem software. The many-body methods include novel variants of both coupled-cluster and configuration-interaction approaches along with methods based on the algebraic diagrammatic construction and variational reduced density-matrix methods. Methods highlighted in Q-Chem 5 include a suite of tools for modeling core-level spectroscopy, methods for describing metastable resonances, methods for computing vibronic spectra, the nuclear‚Äďelectronic orbital method, and several different energy decomposition analysis techniques. High-performance capabilities including multithreaded parallelism and support for calculations on graphics processing units are described. Q-Chem boasts a community of well over 100 active academic developers, and the continuing evolution of the software is supported by an ‚Äúopen teamware‚ÄĚ model and an increasingly modular design

    On subelliptic manifolds

    A smooth complex quasi-affine algebraic variety Y is flexible if its special group SAut(Y) of automorphisms (generated by the elements of one-dimensional unipotent subgroups of Aut(Y)) acts transitively on Y, and an algebraic variety is stably flexible if its product with some affine space is flexible. An irreducible algebraic variety X is locally stably flexible if it is a union of a finite number of Zariski open sets each of which is stably flexible. The main result of this paper states that the blowup of a locally stably flexible variety along a smooth algebraic subvariety (not necessarily equidimensional or connected) is subelliptic, and, therefore, it is an Oka manifold
