Colby College Self-Consistent Field Hartree Fock Theory: Roothaan Equations LCAO approach: Ψ a = i=1 N c ia φ i Ψ a = one-electron molecular orbital φ i = atomic orbitals for N orbitals (Slater or Gaussian) c ia = orbital coefficients -- variational parameters Molecule wavefunctions are Slater determinants of one-electron MO’s Ψ = 1 / N! Ψ a (1) α(1) Ψ a (1) β(1) Ψ b (1) α(1) Ψ b (1) β(1) Ψ a (2) α(2) Ψ a (2) β(2) Ψ b (2) α(2) Ψ b (2) β(2) Ψ a (3) α(3) Ψ a (3) β(3) Ψ b (3) α(3) Ψ b (3) β(3) : : : : Spin wavefunction: σ(1) = α(1) or β(1) Variation Theorem: vary c ia ’s to find the lowest energy: Hartree-Fock Equations: f 1 Ψ a (1) σ(1) = ε a Ψ a (1) σ(1) ε a = one-electron orbital energy for MO a, b, c, … f 1 = h 1 + j=1 n/2 {2J j (1) - K j (1) } j = all the other filled orbitals for electron 1, 2, 3, … core Hamiltonian: h 1 = h 2 2m 2 1 - k=1 m Z k e 2 4 π ε o r k 1 k = all nuclei
