We describe a coupling parameter, that is, perturbation, approach to effectively create and annihilate atoms in the quantum mechanical Hamiltonian within the closed shell restricted Hartree-Fock formalism. This perturbed quantum mechanical atom (PQA) method is combined with molecular mechanics (MM) methods (PQA/MM) within a molecular dynamics simulation, to model the protein environment (MM region) effects that also make a contribution to the overall free energy change. Using the semiempirical...[Show more]
