Computational Nanoscience, Lecture 16: More and Less than Hartree-Fock

By Jeffrey C Grossman1, Elif Ertekin2

Published on


In the lecture we discuss both techniques for going "beyond" Hartree-Fock in order to include correlation energy as well as techniques for capturing electronic structure effects while not having to solve the full Hartree-Fock equations (ie, semi-empirical methods). We also very briefly touch upon the pseudopotential approximation.
