Quantum-Mechanical Calculation of One-Electron Properties. I. General Formulation


For a one-electron operator, general formulas for weighted transition functions, weighted density functions, and their integrals are introduced. A detailed treatment is given of the expressions that are obtained from these formulas when they are applied to a system whose wave functions are expanded in a series of determinants of one-electron spin orbitals. Explicit consideration is given to the nonorthogonality problem and a method for the exact inclusion of overlap terms is formulated. The simplifications resulting from the use of the single determinant approximation and orthonormal functions are discussed. A brief evaluation of the suitability of the formulation for digital computer calculation is given.
