 Hartree-Fock - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Fock, who improved the rigour of Hartree's method to make it consistent with the Pauli principle and reformulated it into the matrix form used today.
A clever dodge, employed by Hartree, for atomic calculations was to increase the nuclear charge, thus pulling all the electrons closer together.
The newly constructed Fock operator is then used as the Hamiltonian in the time-independent Schrödinger Equation.

 4.3.1 -Hartree-Fock Theory
In general the calculation of each element of the Fock matrix requires access to all the elements of the density matrix and the array which holds the elements i,j,k,l (the Z matrix).
After each send, the processor forms all the interactions that connect the current density and Fock matrix elements and then passes the data to the left and receives the new data from the right where the process is repeated.
The density and Fock matrices are replicated onto each processor, each processor computes a subset of the integrals to form a partial Fock matrix.

 10. Hartree-Fock or Self-consistent Field
The underlying assumption in the use of symmetry in Fock matrix construction is that the density is totally symmetric.
In a startup calculation (see Section 5.1), the default source for guess vectors is a diagonalized Fock matrix constructed from a superposition of the atomic density matrices for the particular problem.
This directive enables/disables the use of symmetry to speed up Fock matrix construction (via the petite-list or skeleton algorithm) in the SCF, if symmetry was used in the specification of the geometry.

 Hartree-Fock - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Hartree-Fock method is typically used to solve the time-independent Schrödinger equation for a multi-electron atom or molecule described in the fixed-nuclei approximation by the electronic molecular Hamiltonian.
Fock, who demonstrated the rigour of Hartree's method and reformulated it into the matrix form used today.
Under this approximation, (outlined under Hartree-Fock algorithm), all of the terms of the exact Hamiltonian except the nuclear-nuclear repulsion term are re-expressed as the sum of one-electron Fock operators.

 Electronic problem: Hartree-Fock
This dependence (exemplified in equations 1.25 and 1.26) forces that the Hartree-Fock equations must be solved iteratively until self-consistency.
Equation 1.29 is a pseudo-eigenvalue equation because the Fock operator cannot be known unless we know the molecular orbitals, and molecular orbitals are obtained by the Fock operator.
Its elements will be the coefficients to optimize in order to have a diagonal representation of the Fock matrix and therefore the pursued coefficients to obtain the molecular orbitals.

 Hartree-Fock - (3) HF Equations
The single-electron Hartree hamiltonian and the Coulomb component of the Hartree-Fock potential are both local operators.
where h is the simplified Hartree hamiltonian for non-interacting electrons that we started with and the bracketed potential term is the extra Hartree-Fock potential arising from including electron-electron interactions with an antisymmetrized wave function.
It is a Hartree-Fock correction term providing a lowering of the overall energy of interaction due to spin correlation keeping like-spin electrons being apart.

Conventional implementations of Hartree-Fock theory are dominated by computation of exchange and Coulomb contributions to the Fock matrix.
Calculation of the two-electron integrals (and therefore the Fock matrix) is formally an N^4 process, where N is the number of basis functions.
Linear scaling computation of the Fock matrix is achieved with specialized methods that exploit the unique characteristics of the exchange and Coulomb interactions.

 Douglas Hartree - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Hartree's last Ph.D. student at Cambridge, Charlotte Froese Fischer, would become world-famous for the development and implementation of the multi-configuration Hartree-Fock (MCHF) approach to atomic structure calculations and for her theoretical prediction concerning the existence of the negative calcium ion.
Hartree moved to theoretical physics in 1937 before returning to Cambridge to take up the post of Plummer professor of mathematical physics in 1946.
Douglas Rayner Hartree (March 27, 1897 - February 12, 1958) was an English mathematician and physicist most famous for the development of numerical analysis and its application to atomic physics.

It is seen that the first term in (1.10), which is called the Hartree energy, is equivalent to the classical Coulomb interaction between two charge densities.
The HF-exchange energy is a non-positive function that has the important property that in the two summations of (1.10) its terms with a=b cancels with equivalent terms of the Hartree energy.

According to this Hartree-Fock method the volume of each of the atoms i, as required subsequently, is also obtained.
The invention relates to a method of determining the concentrations of the constituents in a mixture of substances, in which for each of the substances the set of associated diffraction reflections is identified in a radiation diffractogram of the mixture and the relative intensities of each set of diffraction reflections are determined.
This method implies that the integral in the left-hand term is determined from the known charge density distributions of the constituent electron clouds in the crystallographic unity cell.

 Chemistry - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
In practice, only the simplest chemical systems may realistically be investigated in purely quantum mechanical terms, and approximations must be made for most practical purposes (e.g., Hartree-Fock, post Hartree-Fock or Density functional theory, see computational chemistry for more details).
Hence a detailed understanding of quantum mechanics is not necessary for most chemistry, as the important implications of the theory (principally the orbital approximation) can be understood and applied in simpler terms.
It is, in principle, possible to describe all chemical systems using this theory.

Hartree-Fock method The essential idea of the Hartree-Fock or molecular orbital method is that, for a closed shell system, the electrons are assigned two at a time to a set of molecular orbitals.
The molecular orbital method is generally referred to as the Hartree-Fock method.
This is the sub class that uses the molecular orbital method, possibly followed by a post molecular orbital method that uses the molecular orbital wave function as the reference function.

 The Hartree-Fock method
The major problem with the Hartee-Fock method, is that all the electron-electron interactions are approximated with the mean-field interaction.
Thus, the many-electron wave function can be reduced to a product of several one-electron wave functions, a so called Hartree product.
Therefore, the numerical self consistent field method (SCF) is used.

 Ab initio method for finite lattice clusters
The computational method used is based on a frozen core approximation, where the wavefunction is divided into valence and core orbitals [Pakkanen78,Whitten80].
The present method of classification applies to any system with translational symmetry, since it is not restricted to a basis function or an atom.
The method is also not restricted to three dimensions, and in fact there are several cases where considerations of higher dimensions can be useful.
