ABSTRACT: We have constructed the complete transcorrelated equation for homogeneous electron gases and investigated this equation on two- and three-dimensional systems. Correct asymptotic behaviours of the correlation factors can be easily obtained from the transcorrelated equation, both the long-range RPA type decay and the short-range spin dependent cusp conditions. The complete transcorrelated equation is solved numerically and the outcome correlation energies agree very well with variational quantum Monte Carlo results. Possible simplifications of the transcorrelated calculations are discussed, where we find that the RPA equation for the correlation factor can be considerably improved by adding one more term in the equation.
