A high-accuracy, nonrelativistic wave function is used to study nuclear motion in the ground state of three-particle {a1+a2+a3−} electronic and muonic molecular systems without assuming the Born-Oppenheimer approximation. Intracule densities and center-of-mass particle densities show that as the mass ratio mai/ma3, i=1,2, becomes smaller, the local...

An implementation of the Hartree–Fock (HF) method using a Laguerre-based wave function is described and used to accurately study the ground state of two-electron atoms in the fixed nucleus approximation, and by comparison with fully correlated (FC) energies, used to determine accurate electron correlation energies. A variational parameter A is incl...

In this contribution we discuss how the series solution method can be used effectively to probe the bound state stability of three-particle systems. We demonstrate the versatility of the method by presenting results of a variational method for calculating the threshold values of particle mass or particle charge for the formation of a bound state. B...

This paper presents high-accuracy correlation energies,
intracule densities and Coulomb hole(s) for the lithium cation,
helium, hydride ion and the system with the critical nuclear
charge, ZC, for binding two electrons. The fully correlated
(FC) wave function and the Hartree–Fock (HF) wave function
are both determined using a Laguerre-based wave fu...

This review brings together mathematical proofs and high-accuracy quantum chemical numerical calculations on the hydride ion, the anion of hydrogen. Our discussion is confined to Hartree–Fock theory and the nonrelativistic time-independent Schrödinger equation, within the fixed-nucleus approximation. It is written so as to be accessible to both the...

We investigate the Colle–Salvetti (CS) formula, the basis of the Lee, Yang and Parr (LYP) correlation functional used in approximate density functional theory. The CS formula is reparametrized using high-accuracy Hartree–Fock (HF) wavefunctions to determine the accuracy of the formula to calculate anions. Fitting to the hydride ion or the two-elect...

The many-electron Schrödinger equation for atoms and molecules still remains
analytically insoluble after over 90 years of investigation. This has not deterred
scientists from developing a large variety of elegant techniques and approximations to
workaround this issue and make many-particle quantum calculations computationally
tractable. This thesi...
