### Unrestricted Hartree-Fock : Density matrices initialization

I have some results about the energy of H2 as a function of the bond length using Restricted HF (RHF) and Unrestricted HF (UHF) methods. With a zero-initialization of the density matrix I have the ...

### Explicit form of Hartree Fock analytic gradient with contracted GTOs? With or without density fitting

Does anyone know of a paper, textbook, or other resource which outlines the expression for the analytic gradient of the HF energy (restricted or otherwise) in terms of Dunning's contracted Gaussian-...

### What's the best code for getting 1-particle and 2-particle density matrices with CCSD(T) in Python?

I have been using PySCF to calculate the 1-particle and 2-particle density matrix from ccsd(T) wavefunction using these modules in-built in PySCF make_rdm1() and <...

### Exploiting 8-fold symmetry of ERI tensor for building Coulomb and Exchange matrices

I'm trying to write a restricted Hartree Fock code in Fortran that reads in a file of zeroth-iteration 1 and 2 electron integrals (FCIDUMP format) and uses them to do the SCF procedure from an initial ... 769 views

### What do size-extensivity and size-consistency mean?

I have heard both terms in various lectures and books on quantum chemistry, however, I have not found a proper explanation of them. As I understand now, size consistency of a method means for example, ...

### How to compute the overlap matrix in Python

I want to calculate the overlap integral (S), I made the code, but it is only worked when I use a basis function that describe 1s and when I include 2s orbital, I start to get error. The First Problem ...

### Is the formula of a Dyson orbital independent of whether there is degeneracy or not in the HOMO of the neutral?

A Dyson orbital is defined as: $$\textrm{Dy}(x) = \int dx_1 \ldots dx_{N-1} \, (\Psi^+(x_1,\ldots,x_{N-1}))^* \, \Psi^0(x_1,\ldots,x_{N-1}, x),\tag{1}$$ where $\Psi^0$ and $\Psi^+$ are the total ...

### How to read data from an input and form two-electrons integral?

I am doing a code that can calculate the hartree-fock energy. I want to form the two-electrons integral by reading the data from the input like this one below. The first four number are the indices ...

### Why is uncertainty not a big problem in computational chemistry?

The molecular Hamiltonian (or, for simplicity, the Fock operator) contains coulomb potentials as well as momentum operators. To evaluate the coulomb potential, we need to know where the electrons are. ...

### For DFT and Hartree-Fock, how can we know that we have a true minimum? Is there an equivalent to the "frequency analysis" for geometry optimization?

In a geometry optimisation, one can check if they have reached a minimum by checking the phonons. And to a certain extent, the global minimum can be confirmed by relaxing from different starting ...
I found the following example of code which uses density functional theory to compute the electron density $\rho$: ...
