Linear scaling quantum-chemical methods for large systems

The standard methods of computational quantum chemistry have been developed for small molecules and become prohibitively expen-sive for large systems. For quantum chemistry to make an impact on fields such as molecular biology and medicine, these methods must be reformulated in such a manner that...
