Molecular Electronic-Structure Theory by Trygve Helgaker

By Trygve Helgaker

This is often the 1st entire, updated and technical paintings to hide the entire very important facets of contemporary molecular electronic-structure idea. subject matters lined within the booklet include:
- moment quantization with spin adaptation
- Gaussian foundation units and molecular-integral evaluation
- Hartree-Fock theory
- Configuration-interaction and multi-configurational self-consistent theory
- Coupled-cluster thought for floor and excited states
- Perturbation idea for unmarried- and multi-configurational states
- Linear-scaling thoughts and the short multipole method
- Explicity correlated wave functions
- Basis-set convergence and extrapolation
- Calibration and benchmarking of computational equipment, with purposes to moelcular equilibrium constitution, atomization energies and response enthalpies.
Molecular Electronic-Structure concept makes huge use of numerical examples, designed to demonstrate the strengths and weaknesses of every technique handled. moreover, statements concerning the usefulness and deficiencies of a few of the tools are supported by way of genuine examples, not only version calculations. difficulties and routines are supplied on the finish of every bankruptcy, entire with tricks and solutions.
This e-book is a needs to for researchers within the box of quantum chemistry in addition to for nonspecialists who desire to gather an intensive realizing of ab initio molecular electronic-structure thought and its functions to difficulties in chemistry and physics. it's also hugely steered for the educating of graduates and complex undergraduates.
