For atoms and diatomic molecules, the integro-differential RHF equations can be solved by finite difference or finite element methods. For polyatomic molecules, these approaches pose significant mathematical problems and the equations have traditionally been solved using basis set expansion methods.

Using Basis Sets to Solve the Hartree-Fock Equations Basis Set Expansion Method The orbital ± i in the RHF equation is a function of a set of one-electron variables, ( x 1 , y 1 , z 1 ), and thus it can be represented by an expansion in a basis set: ± i = ² ³ c ³ i ³ = 1 N bf ´ where ± ² is also a function of ( x 1 , y 1 , z 1 ).
