LCAO Approximation numerical solutions for the Hartree-Fock orbitals only practical for atoms and diatomics diatomic orbitals resemble linear combinations of atomic orbitals e.g. sigma bond in H 2 σ 1s A + 1s B for polyatomics, approximate the molecular orbital by a linear combination of atomic orbitals (LCAO) = μ χ φ c

Basis Functions 2200 χ ’s are called basis functions usually centered on atoms can be more general and more flexible than atomic orbitals larger number of well chosen basis functions yields more accurate approximations to the molecular orbitals = μ χ φ c
