Weak interactions have a critical role in accurately portraying conformational change. However, the computational study of these often requires large basis electronic structure calculations that are generally cost-prohibitive within ab initio molecular dynamics. Here, we present a new approach to efficiently obtain AIMD trajectories in agreement with large, triple-ζ, polarized valence basis functions, at much reduced computational cost. For example, it follows from our studies that AIMD trajectories can indeed be constructed in agreement with basis sets such as 6-311++G(2df,2pd) with computational effort commensurate with those from much smaller basis sets such as 6-31+G(d), for polypeptide systems with 100+ atoms. The method is based on molecular fragmentation and allows a range-specified repartitioning of intramolecular (and potentially intermolecular) interactions where noncovalent interactions are selectively assembled using a piece-wise reconstruction based on a set-theoretic inclusion-exclusion principle generalization of ONIOM. Through a simplex decomposition of molecular systems the approach efficiently provides the necessary many-body interactions to faithfully represent noncovalent interactions at the large basis limit. Conformational stabilization energies are provided at close to the complete-basis limit at much reduced cost, and similarly AIMD trajectories (both Born-Oppenheimer and Car-Parrinello-type) are obtained in agreement with very large basis set sizes, in an extremely efficient and accurate manner. The method is demonstrated through simulations on polypeptide fragments of a variety of sizes.
