1. Explain the following terms: a. MP2 Moller Plesset perturbation theory is the Hamiltonian operator using the Hartree- Fock operator plus a perturbing operator that is multiplied by a lambada (which equals 0-1). The lambada and perturbing operator act as a correction to the Hartree-Fock Hamiltonian operator. MP2 take the base level energy and adds two correctional energies(MP1 and MP2) b. CI Configuration interaction is a post-Hartree Fock linear variational method for solving the nonrelativistic Schrödinger equation within the Born Oppenheimer approximation for a quantum chemical multi-electron system c. CCSD Couple cluster single and double excitations. It is used in coupled clusters to expand excitations states to solve for the wavefunction. d. G2 The G2 method is known for giving accurate thermochemistry energies. It is an approximate higher order method. It starts with a basic geometry optimization using MP2 method. Then that geometry to collect the different energies and effect. These include: zero point vibrational energy, polarization effects, diffusion effects, higher order effects, large basis set effects, and finally a core valence correction. Then we would add there together to get the G2 energy.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
