The Method

  • John W. D. Connolly
Part of the Modern Theoretical Chemistry book series (MTC, volume 7)

Abstract

The Xα method as applied to problems of theoretical chemistry fits neatly into the gap between the traditional extremes of the ab initio and the semiempirical approaches. It is the aim of this chapter to explain the justification, development, and applications of this method.

Keywords

Charge Density Occupation Number Virial Theorem Energy Band Calculation Transition State Approximation 
These keywords were added by machine and not by the authors. This process is experimental and the keywords may be updated as the learning algorithm improves.
