I invite you to submit scholarly research papers to the first special issue of the journal Computation. Papers discussing computational models, methods, and their application in fields of science and engineering, are all welcome. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to astronomy, protein structure, soft matter self assembly, electronic structure, designer materials, acoustics, transport phenomena, and cell functions. Computation is important in current science and engineering research, enabling models with full atomistic detail, fast exploration of large parameter spaces, and analysis of experimental data. Research papers, reviews, and communications on all topics related to computation are invited.

Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. Papers will be published continuously (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are refereed through a peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Computation is an international peer-reviewed Open Access quarterly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. For the first couple of issues the Article Processing Charge (APC) will be waived for well-prepared manuscripts. English correction and/or formatting fees of 250 CHF (Swiss Francs) will be charged in certain cases for those articles accepted for publication that require extensive additional formatting and/or English corrections.

Abstract: Most investigations into the large-scale patterns of protein evolution are based on gene annotations in reference databases. The use of these resources for quantitative comparisons, however, is complicated by sometimes vast differences in coverage. More importantly, however, we also observe substantial ascertainment biases that cannot be removed by simple normalization procedures. A striking example is provided by the correlations between protein domains. We observe that statistics derived from different computational gene annotation procedure show dramatic discrepancies, and even qualitative changes from negative to positive correlation, when compared to statistics obtained from annotation databases.

Abstract: We present the first computational study of the effects of nuclear dynamics of deuterated dyes on the operation of dye-sensitized solar cells. Deuteration causes a red shift of the absorption spectrum of the dye/TiO2 complex by about 5% which affects the overlap with the solar spectrum. The nuclear dynamics effect on the driving force to injection and recombination is strong, yet with little isotopic effect. Nuclear dynamics enhances recombination to the dye ground state due to the approach of the electron donating group to TiO2 and affects dye regeneration by increasing the expectation value of the dye’s ground state energy This effect is similar for deuterated and non-deuterated dyes.
