Alchemical and structural distribution based representation for improved QML


We introduce a representation of any atom in any chemical environment for the generation of efficient quantum machine learning (QML) models of common electronic ground-state properties. The representation is based on scaled distribution functions explicitly accounting for elemental and structural degrees of freedom. Resulting QML models afford very favorable learning curves for properties of out-of-sample systems including organic molecules, non-covalently bonded protein side-chains, (H2_2O)40_{40}-clusters, as well as diverse crystals. The elemental components help to lower the learning curves, and, through interpolation across the periodic table, even enable "alchemical extrapolation" to covalent bonding between elements not part of training, as evinced for single, double, and triple bonds among main-group elements
