(2021-01-26)

The experimental vertical electron detachment energy VEDE of aqueous fluoride, F− H2O , is
approximately 9.8 eV, but spectral assignment is complicated by interference between F− 2p and
H2O 1b1 orbitals. The electronic ...

### Quasiparticle virtual orbitals in electron propagator calculations

(2021-01-26)

The computational limits of accurate electron propagator methods for the calculation of electron
