Quantum Home Sucks Customer Reviews and Feedback

From Everything.Sucks

QMC@Home is a distributed computing project for the BOINC client aimed at further developing and testing Quantum Monte Carlo (QMC) for use in quantum chemistry. It is hosted by the University of Münster with participation by the Cavendish Laboratory. QMC@Home allows volunteers from around the world to donate idle computer cycles to help calculate molecular geometry using Diffusion Monte Carlo.

The abstract from Paulo H. Acioli's journal "Review of Monte Carlo quantum methods and their applications" (published in 1997), points out a particular problem with this method for studying electron correlation, created by QMC@Home, in the "Sciencedirect" website:

"We also review some of its applications, such as the homogeneous electron gas, atoms and the inhomogeneous electron gas (jellium surface). The correlation energy obtained by Ceperley and Alder (D.M. Ceperley and B.J. Alder, Physical Review, 45 (1980) 566), as parameterized by Perdew and Zunger (J.P. Perdew and A. Zunger, Phys. Rev. B23 (1980) 5469), is one of the most used in DFT calculations in the local density approximation (LDA). Unfortunately, the use of the LDA in inhomogeneous systems is questionable, and better approximations are desired or even necessary."

I certify that this review is based on my own experiece and is my opinion of this person or business. I have not been offered any incentive or payment to write this review.

Home health nurse (Former Employee) says

"There were times a patient refused treatment / wound care, but I always had a good time regardless. I got to know not only the patient but the families as well, and they were the ones that provided me with the valuable information that would help me do my job. I did not spend a lot of time with my co-workers, but the contact I did have with them was always cordial. I worked here only on a per diem basis, and I was looking for something more permanent in the meantime. At this particular place we had several people on Coumadin and regularly did PT / INR monitoring with only 2 machines. And it was very difficult to have to meet the nurse that had it at that particular time, halfway, just to pick it up, use it, and then return it. This really made for non productive time. Cons: we had to all meet at the office on paydays to pick up our checks, they did not offer or have direct deposit."

LPN- Office Coordinator (Current Employee) says

"Huge recent turnover in management. Owner of the company is making several changes. Some of which I am I complete disagreement with. I do not feel that he has the best interest of his employees or the patients they care at heart."
