    We formulated and implemented a perturbative triples correction for the state-specific multireference coupled cluster approach with singles and doubles suggested by Mukherjee and co-workers, Mk-MRCCSD [Mol. Phys. 94, 157 (1998)]. Our derivation of the energy correction [Mk-MRCCSD(T)] is based on...

    Atmospheric new particle formation is a general phenomenon observed over coniferous forests. So far nucleation is described as a function of gaseous sulfuric acid concentration only, which is unable to explain the observed seasonality of nucleation events at different measurement sites. Here we...
