Abstract

We illustrate the domain decomposition Conductor-like Screening Model (ddCOSMO) implementation and how to couple it with an existing classical or quantum mechanical (QM) code. We review in detail what input needs to be provided to ddCOSMO and how to assemble it, describe how the ddCOSMO equations are solved and how to process the results to assemble the required quantities, such as Fock matrix contributions for the QM case, or forces for the classical one. Throughout the article, we will make explicit references to the ddCOSMO module, which is an open source, Fortran 90 implementation of ddCOSMO that can be downloaded and distributed under the LGPL license.
