Truncated configuration interaction: CIS, CISD, CISDT, etc. We start with a reference wavefunction, for example the Hartree-Fock determinant. We then select determinants for the wavefunction expansion by substituting orbitals of the reference determinant by orbitals that are not occupied in the reference state (virtual orbitals). Singles (S) indicate that 1 orbital is replaced, doubles (D) indicate 2 replacements, triples (T) indicate 3 replacements, etc., leading to CIS, CISD, CISDT, etc. N N k j i 3 2 1 HF etc. etc. , 3 2 1 , 3 2 1 N N N k b a ab ij N k j a a i

In the MCSCF method, not only the linear weights of the determinants are variationally optimized, but also the orbital coefficients. One important selection is governed by the full CI space spanned by a number of prescribed active orbitals (complete active space, CAS). This is the CASSCF method. The CASSCF wavefunction contains all determinants that can be constructed from a given set of orbitals with the constraint that some specified pairs of - and -spin-orbitals must occur in all determinants (these are the inactive doubly occupied spatial orbitals). Multireference CI wavefunctions are obtained by applying the excitation operators to the individual CSFs or determinants of the MCSCF (or CASSCF) reference wave function. k C C c k k k k ) ˆ ˆ ( CISD - MR 2 1 k k k k k k d C k C c 2 1 ˆ ) ˆ ( MRCI - IC Internally-contracted MRCI:

CCSDT model is very expensive in terms of computer resources. Approximations are introduced for the triples: CCSD(T), CCSD[T], CCSD-T. Brueckner coupled-cluster ( e.g ., BCCD) methods use Brueckner orbitals that are optimized such that singles don’t contribute. By omitting some of the CCSD terms, the quadratic CI method ( e.g ., QCISD) is obtained.

We apply perturbation theory as usual after decomposing the Hamiltonian into two parts: More complicated with more than one reference determinant ( e.g ., MR-PT, CASPT2, CASPT3, …) F ˆ F H H F H H F H H H H ˆ ˆ ˆ ˆ ˆ ˆ ˆ 1 0 1 0 MP2, MP3, MP4, …etc. number denotes order to which energy is computed (2n+1 rule)

    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.
