### When measuring avidity should you use the ligand concentration or the nanoparticle concentration?

Looking at avidity between a ligand-receptor, you're looking at an enhancement of the $K_d$ compared to a lone ligand. Is it more appropriate to compare the $K_d$ using the concentration of the "...

### How to Calculate Transition Dipole Moment from Two Known Wavefunctions

I am interested in calculating the transition dipole moment (TDM) from the information from two wavefunctions of different states. This is somewhat similar to calculating the molecular dipole moment ...
