|Description||Development and applications of many-body methods capable of reliable computation of potential energy curves (PEC) containing avoided curve-crossing zone remains a challenging area of activity in electronic structure theory till date. In this paper, we present the PEC of the ground state and the corresponding lowest charge transfer state of an isolated 1 : 1 AI+3.He complex, calculated using the third order effective valence shell Hamiltonian, Hv 3rd, method (a variant of quasi-degenerate multi-reference perturbation theory) and then analyze the aspect of avoided curve-crossing between these two states of the complex. The published theoretical data of this complex is very limited and to our knowledge no experimental data has been reported yet for the ground and excited electronic states of this complex. Thus, a comprehensive theoretical investigation of such a complex would be very useful to identify its structural properties. In our numerical analysis, a comparison of our findings is made with the results generated via other many-body methods whenever available. The results obtained from our method appear quite promising, implying the efficacy of Hv 3rd method to compute the energy surfaces (with degeneracy/quasi-degeneracy of varying degrees) over a wide range of geometries including the avoided curve-crossing zone. We further report the ground state spectroscopic constants of this complex obtained from the improved virtual orbital-complete active space configuration interaction (IVO-CASCI) based numerical gradient method. The spectroscopic constants predicted by the IVO-CASCI are in agreement with those determined from the state-of-the-art coupled cluster method.|

Ministry of Human Resource Development (MHRD) under its National Mission on Education through Information and Communication Technology (NMEICT) has initiated the National Digital Library of India (NDL India) pilot project to develop a framework of virtual repository of learning resources with a single-window search facility. Filtered and federated searching is employed to facilitate focused searching so that learners can find out the right resource with least effort and in minimum time. NDL India is designed to hold content of any language and provides interface support for leading Indian languages. It is being arranged to provide support for all academic levels including researchers and life-long learners, all disciplines, all popular form of access devices and differently-abled learners. It is being developed to help students to prepare for entrance and competitive examination, to enable people to learn and prepare from best practices from all over the world and to facilitate researchers to perform inter-linked exploration from multiple sources. The pilot project is devising a framework that is being scaled up with respect to content volume and diversity to serve all levels and disciplines of learners. It is being developed at Indian Institute of Technology Kharagpur.
NDL India is a conglomeration of freely available or institutionally contributed or donated or publisher managed contents. Almost all these contents are hosted and accessed from respective sources. The responsibility for authenticity, relevance, completeness, accuracy, reliability and suitability of these contents rests with respective organization from where the contents are sourced and NDL India has no responsibility or liability for these. Every effort is made to keep the NDL India portal up and running smoothly. However, NDL India takes no responsibility for, and will not be liable for, the portal being unavailable due to technical issues or otherwise.
