Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


We calculate the electronic and atomic structure of (MnO)n (n = 1-4) using the HF exchange, VWN, PBE and B3LYP exchange-correlation functional. We also perform diffusion Monte Carlo calculation to evaluate more accurate energies. We compare these results and discuss the accuracy of the exchange-correlation functionals.
