Accurate Ab Initio Calculation of Molecular Constants
Svetlana A. Kotochigova, I Tupitsyn
The valence bond method and advanced computational technique are used to perform all-electron ab initio calculations of the electronic structure of diatomic molecules. The basic idea behind the method is to expand the molecular wavefunction in terms of Hartzee-Fock orbitals of the composing atoms. Full Cl within this nonorthogonal basis leads to a high accuracy for the electronic structure calculation. The code generates molecular constants such as dissociation and ionization energies, electronic equilibrium bond distance, vibrational and rotational constants with an uncertainty of a few percent. This uncertainty is estimated from a comparison between our results with both experimental and other theoretical investigations for a number of monhydride molecules.
