Is the HOMO energy obtained from GW calculation always a value relative to the vacuum energy (-Ip)?

Aim: I want to obtain a reasonably accurate ionization energy (or work function in other terms) for a 2-dimensional hBN monolayer. The exact material does not matter much respective to the question, ...

What do size-extensivity and size-consistency mean?

I have heard both terms in various lectures and books on quantum chemistry, however, I have not found a proper explanation of them. As I understand now, size consistency of a method means for example, ...

How to choose appropriate energy term in GROMACS MD simulation (Lennard-Jones or Coulomb)?

I was performing MD simulation for protein-ligand complex following GROMACS tutorial. I compared the energy of two ligands (S1 and S2) to a protein, using GROMACS LJ-SR (Lennard-Jones Short Range) ...

Apparent conservation of potential energy in NPT simulation?

I was examining a system with a problematic equilibration (more details given at the end, but probably unnecessary to answer the question), and came upon what is presumably a pretty basic conceptual ...

What is exfoliation energy per unit area?

I see in many sources the exfoliation energy defined with the unit $meV/A^2$ I frankly don't understand how it's calculated and I couldn't find any mathematical formula for that. its unit confuses me. ...
