Annual DFT Popularity Poll 2018 is open (No replies)
the 2018 edition of the annual DFT Popularity Poll is open:
Since 2010 we have been organizing an annual online popularity poll for density functionals where we probe the preferences of the computational chemistry community for their preferred Density Functional Theory (DFT) functionals. It all started with a presentation by Matthias Bickelhaupt (Feb. 2009) that showed the values of various chemical properties calculated using quite a number of different density functionals. Miquel Duran suggested, essentially, "averaging" a number of these values but with appropriate weightings applied that reflected how "good" the employed functionals were. Thus obtaining a "consensus" density functional result. This could then act as a measure of how well the computational chemistry community is doing if compared to state-of-the-art reference data.
Full details of the poll can be found here:

If you think some functionals are missing, please send their names to [email protected]
to be included as one of the 10 additional functionals to be included in Segona Divisió.
