Caltech news highlights matt and sherry’s recent machine learning work matt and sherry’s paper on a transferable machine-learning method for predicting electronic structure correlation energies is covered in a caltech news article. Electronically conducting polymers are extensively conjugated molecules, and it is believed that they possess a spatially delocalized band-like electronic structure [7,20]these bands stem from the splitting of interacting molecular orbitals of the constituent monomer units in a manner reminiscent of the band structure of solid-state semiconductors (figure 13.
