If ‘t’ is large, we can work with MO theory and factorize the wavefunction. If ‘t’ is small this is not possible. bb aa In general we can us ‘Schrodinger Eqn.’ for the complete system: i H t ψ = H is the Hamiltonian for the complete system 2 Lowest energy states: Molecular Orbital Theory: a a b b , 2 2 a b a b - - , 2 2 a b a b + + Now, ( 29 1 i i B E N k T i P e Z μ - -
