Rys Quadrature method for integrating over Gaussian basis functions: 1D integral recursion relation

I'm trying to implement the Rys Quadrature method for integrations of Gaussians, from scratch. I'm using this paper as a reference. So, how does the overall recursion relation for evaluating 1D ...

Evaluating Coulomb and exchange integrals in practice using cartesian coordinates

Many software packages provide means to calculate the Coulomb and exchange integrals, for example, the exchange $$\int \phi^*(1) \, \psi^*(2) \frac{1}{|\mathbf{r_1} - \mathbf{r_2}|} \, \psi(1) \, \phi(...

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 ...

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 ...

How are 1-electron and 2-electron integrals done in PySCF?

I am right now using the PySCF for some quantum chemistry problems. I need to get the parameters, which are labeled $h_{ij}$ and $V_{ijkl}$. How can I get this done with PySCF?

Which software is good with generally contracted basis sets?

Recently, I learnt that basis sets can be contracted as segmented (like def2 or 6-31G) or general (like cc-PVTZ, or ANO). The general contraction allows all the primitives to appear in all shells, ...

Why is my quantum chemistry software not printing as many 2e- integrals as I expect?

Background: In Hartree-Fock theory, the two-electron integral is given by: $[ij|kl]$ = $\int dx_{1}dx_{2}(\chi_{i}(x_{1})\chi_{j}(x_{1})\frac{1}{r_{12}}\chi_{k}^{*}(x_2)\chi_{l}(x_{2})$ I am ...
