Quantum chemistry / Ira N. Levine.—Seventh edition. .. The computer programs in the Solutions Manual and the text were changed from. BASIC to C++. Quantum Chemistry 7th Edition by Ira N. Levine ISBN ISBN Knoxville, TN Book & Media Reviews. Quantum Chemistry, 5th Edition by Ira N. Levine. Prentice Hall: Upper Saddle River, NJ, x + pp.
All the necessary mathematics is presented alongside the physics and chemistry, and is given sufficient detail to be accessible to those with little mathematical background. Levine last month December I was among the first students in his debut class in quantum chemistry back in the late 's. We used the zeroth edition of this book as it was being written, delivered to the students - in mimeograph form - one chapter at a time by Prof. As a hobby, I've downloadd and read subsequent editions over the years even though my professional career took me into engineering rather than theoretical chemistry. The book has remained at the pinnacle of QC texts for advanced undergraduate, graduate, and self-study use. This 7th edition is no exception.
Approximations[ edit ] The Hartree—Fock method makes five major simplifications in order to deal with this task: The Born—Oppenheimer approximation is inherently assumed. The full molecular wave function is actually a function of the coordinates of each of the nuclei, in addition to those of the electrons.
Typically, relativistic effects are completely neglected.
The momentum operator is assumed to be completely non-relativistic. The variational solution is assumed to be a linear combination of a finite number of basis functions , which are usually but not always chosen to be orthogonal.
The finite basis set is assumed to be approximately complete. Each energy eigenfunction is assumed to be describable by a single Slater determinant , an antisymmetrized product of one-electron wave functions i.
The mean-field approximation is implied.
Effects arising from deviations from this assumption are neglected. These effects are often collectively used as a definition of the term electron correlation.
However, the label "electron correlation" strictly spoken encompasses both Coulomb correlation and Fermi correlation, and the latter is an effect of electron exchange, which is fully accounted for in the Hartree—Fock method.
However, this is an important flaw, accounting for among others Hartree—Fock's inability to capture London dispersion. Variational optimization of orbitals[ edit ] Algorithmic flowchart illustrating the Hartree—Fock method The variational theorem states that for a time-independent Hamiltonian operator, any trial wave function will have an energy expectation value that is greater than or equal to the true ground-state wave function corresponding to the given Hamiltonian.
Because of this, the Hartree—Fock energy is an upper bound to the true ground-state energy of a given molecule.
In the context of the Hartree—Fock method, the best possible solution is at the Hartree—Fock limit; i. The other is the full-CI limit , where the last two approximations of the Hartree—Fock theory as described above are completely undone.
It is only when both limits are attained that the exact solution, up to the Born—Oppenheimer approximation, is obtained. The Hartree—Fock energy is the minimal energy for a single Slater determinant.
The starting point for the Hartree—Fock method is a set of approximate one-electron wave functions known as spin-orbitals. For an atomic orbital calculation, these are typically the orbitals for a hydrogen-like atom an atom with only one electron, but the appropriate nuclear charge. For a molecular orbital or crystalline calculation, the initial approximate one-electron wave functions are typically a linear combination of atomic orbitals LCAO.
The orbitals above only account for the presence of other electrons in an average manner. In the Hartree—Fock method, the effect of other electrons are accounted for in a mean-field theory context.
The orbitals are optimized by requiring them to minimize the energy of the respective Slater determinant. The resultant variational conditions on the orbitals lead to a new one-electron operator, the Fock operator.
At the minimum, the occupied orbitals are eigensolutions to the Fock operator via a unitary transformation between themselves.
