Scientific interests and research:
- Theory of intermolecular
Together with collaborators from Quantum Chemistry Laboratory Jeziorski proposed and developed a new approach to the theory of intermolecular forces referred to now in the literature as the symmetry-forcing procedure. This method enables a systematic calculation of the intermolecular potential as a sum of well-defined and physically well-understood contributions such as electrostatic, exchange, induction, and dispersion energies . By performing analytic and numerical studies on model systems Jeziorski and coworkers explained[4,5] pathologically slow convergence of the conventional, "polarization" theory and showed how this convergence can be improved by allowing for the exchange effects, i.e., by imposing the correct permutation symmetry on the dimer wave function.[6,7,8,9] Together with Chalasinski[10,11] Jeziorski performed the first studies of the second-order exchange effects, i.e., the exchange-dispersion and exchange-induction energies, and showed that these energy contributions can significantly affect the intermolecular potential at the van der Waals minimum and at shorter distances.
To allow applications to real many-electron systems Jeziorski led a group of coworkers in a research of developing a many-body version of the theory. In the work with van Hemert he initiated applications of the ideas of the many-body perturbation theory to calculations of the dispersion and induction energies in molecular complexes. This work showed also that the dispersion interaction gives a very important contribution to the energy of the hydrogen bond between water molecules. In further studies[13,14,15,16,17], carried out with Moszynski, Rybak, Szalewicz and others, a complete many-body symmetry-adapted perturbation theory (SAPT) was developed, enabling a systematic studies of the influence of the intramonomer electronic correlation on the electrostatic, exchange, induction, and dispersion components of intermolecular potentials. Thus far applications of SAPT to complexes like He2, Ar-H2, He-HF, Ar-HF, (H2O)2, (CO2)2 or antiprotonic helium dimer have been carried out by Jeziorski and collaborators[19,20,21,22,23,24,25]. Many other applications were performed in van der Avoird's group in Nijmegen and in several other groups. The results of these applications show that the dimer spectra, collision cross sections, and bulk properties predicted by SAPT potentials agree usually very well with experimental data.
- Coupled cluster theory
In 1981 together with Monkhorst Jeziorski proposed a new exponential representation for the open-shell wave function, referred usually in the literature as the Jeziorski-Monkhorst Ansatz. This work initiated a new approach to the open-shell coupled cluster theory, known today as the Hilbert-space approach. The spin-adaptation of the Hilbert-space theory, performed in a collaboration with Paldus[27,28], enabled extensive applications of this method to problems involving intruder states. In 1989 together with Paldus he gave a rigorous algebraic formulation of the valence-universal open-shell coupled cluster theory and discovered its relationship to the multireference CI approach. This work enabled the Newton-Raphson or other nonperturbative approaches to be used in solving the coupled cluster equations. More recently, together with Paldus and Jankowski he proposed a new, general coupled cluster Ansatz based on the ideas of the representation theory of the unitary group. This Ansatz enables a unique cluster representation of a pure spin wave function of arbitrary high excitation order using an open-shell determinant as a vacuum state. Numerous applications carried out by the Waterloo group demonstrated the computational efficiency of the method.
- Explicitly correlated many-body theory
In 1982-1984 in a collaborative effort with Szalewicz, Monkhorst, and Zabolitzky Jeziorski introduced explicitly correlated functions to the coupled cluster and many-body perturbation theory[32,33,34]. The coupled cluster equations were reformulated as a system of coupled integro-differential equations for spin-free cluster functions and variational techniques were developed[32,35] to solve these equations using the basis of explicitly correlated Gaussian geminals. This work brought a new accuracy standard to the coupled cluster calculations and resulted in a series of benchmark studies for small systems. The Gaussian geminal method was also combined with the symmetry-adapted perturbation theory and used to compute new helium potential which, after inclusion of the retardation damping, correctly predicted low temperature bulk properties of helium. In a more recent work performed with Bukowski and Szalewicz he proved the completeness of Gaussian geminals and showed how they can be applied to the CCSD model or to calculate analytical gradients within the framework of the many-body perturbation theory .
- Theory of chemical effects in ß-decay
In 1985-1987 Jeziorski was involved in a collaborative research effort with Szalewicz, Kolos, Monkhorst, and others to obtain the state-of-the-art ß spectrum of molecular and solid tritium, to be used in current and future neutrino mass experiments. He developed the theory and performed numerical calculations accounting for processes of rovibrational excitation, dissociation, and predissociation of the daughter molecular ion HeT+. This work involved also pioneer studies of the formation of molecular resonances of HeT+ ion[40,41] and of the effects of the molecular excitations in the crystal surrounding of the decaying molecule. The obtained data remain the most accurate and reliable to date. Speculations, stirred by the "imaginary" neutrino mass problem appearing in recent neutrino mass experiments, and suggesting that some molecular physics is not fully taken into account in calculations performed by Jeziorski and collaborators, have not been confirmed by further calculations and more precise measurements.
- Theory of muon catalyzed fusion
In 1989-1991 together with Szalewicz, Kolos, and other collaborators Jeziorski was involved in the studies of properties of muonic molecules relevant in the process of muonic catalysis of the nuclear fusion. These studies were motivated by experiments indicating that a single muon can catalyze hundreds of fusion reactions and that, with further improvements, the released nuclear energy may be larger than the energy needed to produce muons. Jeziorski and coworkers developed appropriate theory and carried out very accurate nonadiabatic calculations for the molecular ion composed of muon, deuteron, and triton including not only the Coulombic but also the strong nuclear force acting between the tritium and deuterium nuclei. The obtained results showed that, contrary to various earlier speculations, the already achieved experimental fusion yield is actually very close to the theoretical limit, and the only way to increase the efficiency of muon catalysis is to reactivate muons captured by alpha particles[45,46]. In another work, relevant for the theoretical determination of the formation rates of muonic molecules, Bukowski and Jeziorski developed the theory and performed calculations of the radiative corrections (Lamb shift) to the energy levels of muonic molecules. As a byproduct of this work the most accurate value of the Lamb shift for the "electronic" hydrogen molecular cation was obtained .
