Unformatted text preview: will be infinite if we actually have a complete set of one electron functions ). Similarly, we construct the matrix in this basis by . If we solve this matrix equation, , in the space of all possible Slater determinants as just described, then the procedure is called full configurationinteraction , or full CI. A full CI constitues the exact solution to the timeindependent Schrödinger equation within the given space of the spin orbitals . If we restrict the electron basis set in some way, then we will solve Schrödinger's equation approximately . The method is then called ``configuration interaction,'' where we have dropped the prefix ``full.'' For more information on configuration interaction, see the lecture notes by the present author [ 7 ] or one of the available review articles [ 8 , 9 ]....
