Project 5: Enabling Orbital-Free Density Functional Theory using Machine Learning

15. December 2021

The aim of this project is to speed up quantum chemical computations by replacing expensive-to-compute quantities by predictions from machine learning. The quantities of interest are invariant to or equivariant with translation and orientation, so the deep learning architectures will be imbued with these symmetries by construction.

We look at functionals that generalize across much of chemistry.
