A variety of methods can be used to deform molecules. An example is the application of hydrostatic pressure, which compresses the electron density and the nuclear scaffold of a molecule. This project focuses on the computational modeling of these processes, starting from established methods like X-HCFF and GOSTSHYP. Algorithmic advances will accelerate such calculations and improve the SCF convergence. Newly developed methods will allow the reproduction and optimization of experimental results in high-pressure chemistry.
