Free iterativecomplementinteraction calculations of the hydrogen molecule
Abstract
The free iterativecomplementinteraction (ICI) method based on the scaled Schroedinger equation proposed previously has been applied to the calculations of very accurate wave functions of the hydrogen molecule in an analytical expansion form. All the variables were determined with the variational principle by calculating the necessary integrals analytically. The initial wave function and the scaling function were changes to see the effects on the convergence speed of the ICI calculations. The free ICI wave functions that were generated automatically were different from the existing wave functions, and this difference was shown to be physically important. The best wave function reported in this paper seems to be the best worldwide in the literature from the variational point of view. The quality of the wave function was examined by calculating the nuclear and electron cusps.

The simplest iterative complement (SIC) calculations starting from HartreeFock and giving full configuration interaction (CI) at convergence were performed using regular and inverse Hamiltonians. Each iteration step is variational and involves only one variable. The convergence was slow when we used the regular Hamiltonian, but became very fast when we used the inverse Hamiltonian. This difference is due to the Coulomb singularity problem inherent in the regular Hamiltonian; the inverse Hamiltonian does not have such a problem. For this reason, the merit of the inverse Hamiltonian over the regular one becomes even more dramatic when we use a betterquality basismore »

Solving the Schroedinger Equation of Atoms and Molecules without Analytical Integration Based on the Free IterativeComplementInteraction Wave Function
A local Schroedinger equation (LSE) method is proposed for solving the Schroedinger equation (SE) of general atoms and molecules without doing analytic integrations over the complement functions of the free ICI (iterativecomplementinteraction) wave functions. Since the free ICI wave function is potentially exact, we can assume a flatness of its local energy. The variational principle is not applicable because the analytic integrations over the free ICI complement functions are very difficult for general atoms and molecules. The LSE method is applied to several 2 to 5 electron atoms and molecules, giving an accuracy of 10{sup 5} Hartree in total energy.more » 
Solving the Schroedinger equation for helium atom and its isoelectronic ions with the free iterative complement interaction (ICI) method
The Schroedinger equation was solved very accurately for helium atom and its isoelectronic ions (Z=110) with the free iterative complement interaction (ICI) method followed by the variational principle. We obtained highly accurate wave functions and energies of helium atom and its isoelectronic ions.

Solving the electron and electronnuclear Schroedinger equations for the excited states of helium atom with the free iterativecomplementinteraction method
Very accurate variational calculations with the free iterativecomplementinteraction (ICI) method for solving the Schroedinger equation were performed for the 1sNs singlet and triplet excited states of helium atom up to N=24. This is the first extensive applications of the free ICI method to the calculations of excited states to very high levels. We performed the calculations with the fixednucleus Hamiltonian and movingnucleus Hamiltonian. The latter case is the Schroedinger equation for the electronnuclear Hamiltonian and includes the quantum effect of nuclear motion. This solution corresponds to the nonrelativistic limit and reproduced the experimental values up to five decimal figures. Themore »
