Predicting Properties of Periodic Systems from Cluster Data: A Case Study of Liquid Water

3 Dec 2023  ·  Viktor Zaverkin, David Holzmüller, Robin Schuldt, Johannes Kästner ·

The accuracy of the training data limits the accuracy of bulk properties from machine-learned potentials. For example, hybrid functionals or wave-function-based quantum chemical methods are readily available for cluster data but effectively out-of-scope for periodic structures. We show that local, atom-centred descriptors for machine-learned potentials enable the prediction of bulk properties from cluster model training data, agreeing reasonably well with predictions from bulk training data. We demonstrate such transferability by studying structural and dynamical properties of bulk liquid water with density functional theory and have found an excellent agreement with experimental as well as theoretical counterparts.
