4
Girse 2009 2nd part: examples The SLE describes the variation in time of the system density matrix. The density matrix / probability depends upon quantum pseudo- coordinates and classical (stochastic) variables 1. The cw-ESR spectrum is obtained from the spectral density 1. Schneider, D. J.; Freed, J. H. Adv. Chem. Phys. 1989, 73, 387 SLE

5
Girse 2009 2nd part: examples Numerical implementation (1) The cw-ESR spectrum given is now identified as the real part of the spectral density for the auto-correlation function for the observable, usually named ‘starting’ vector corresponding to the x-component of the magnetization The spectrum is obtained by numerically evaluating the spectral density and this is usually attained via iterative algorithms, like Lanczos or conjugate gradients

6
Girse 2009 2nd part: examples Numerical implementation (2) The spectrum can be written in the form a continued fraction

7
Girse 2009 2nd part: examples Numerical Implementation (3) The computational task is carried on in finite arithmetic, by projecting the symmetrized time evolution operator and the starting vector on a basis set Symmetry arguments can be employed to significantly reduce the number of basis function sets required to achieve convergence, A numerical selection of a reduced basis set of functions based on the ‘pruning’ of basis elements with negligible contribution to the spectrum can be also used The matrix-vector expression for the c.f. coefficients is

8
Girse 2009 2nd part: examples Numerical implementation (4) To evaluate matrix elements, one needs to make explicit the dependence of the Liouvillean from magnetic and orientational parameters. We adopt a spherical irreducible tensorial representation LF GF AnFAnF MF GF MF AnF B0B0 MF LF MF

9
Girse 2009 2nd part: examples Liouvillean symmetrization The Liouville operator is spanned in the set of basis functions This basis set generally leads to a Hermitean matrix representation of the Liouvillean, but Lanczos algorithm is written for symmetric matrices Symmetrization of the Liouvillean is achieved by the basis transformation The matrix elements in the new basis set are expressed in function of the matrix elements in the old basis

10
Girse 2009 2nd part: examples Pruning Basis functions are kept or discharged in function of their relative importance on determining the line shape Weights are calculated with the criterion [7] [7] D. J. Schneider, J. H. Freed, Adv. Chem. Phys. 73, 387 – 527 (1989)

12
Girse 2009 2nd part: examples Calculation of the spectrum is based on stochastic methods and in particular on the solution of the stochastic Liouville equation. In this equation dynamics is added as stochastic operators in the Liouville operator that describes the time evolution of the density matrix of the system. Full diffusion tensor is calculated via a hydrodynamic model that describes the molecule as an ensemble of interacting spherical beads surrounded by a locally isotropic continuous fluid. Diffusion tensor depends on the geometry of the molecule and on the viscosity of the solvent. Non-rigid molecules can be described with internal degrees of freedom represented by torsional angles. Quantum Mechanical calculations are employed to calculate: (i) structural properties like geometry and torsional potentials; (ii) magnetic properties, i.e. the magnetic tensors. E-SpiReS automatically generates an input file for Gaussian that can be edited by the user and submitted directly from the GUI. A number of parameters can be chosen to refine via a non linear least squares minimization routine based on the Levenberg - Marquardt method. Also an experimental spectrum can be loaded as reference.
