Largedimension configurationinteraction calculations of positron binding to the groupII atoms
Abstract
The configurationinteraction (CI) method is applied to the calculation of the structures of a number of positron binding systems, including e{sup +}Be, e{sup +}Mg, e{sup +}Ca, and e{sup +}Sr. These calculations were carried out in orbital spaces containing about 200 electron and 200 positron orbitals up to l=12. Despite the very large dimensions, the binding energy and annihilation rate converge slowly with l, and the final values do contain an appreciable correction obtained by extrapolating the calculation to the l{yields}{infinity} limit. The binding energies were 0.00317 hartree for e{sup +}Be, 0.0170 hartree for e{sup +}Mg, 0.0189 hartree for e{sup +}Ca, and 0.0131 hartree for e{sup +}Sr.

Spinorbitresolved static polarizabilities of group13 atoms: Fourcomponent relativistic configuration interaction and coupled cluster calculations
This study reports static electric dipole polarizabilities of the group 13 atoms in their lowest J=(1/2),(3/2) states including resolution of the property in the corresponding M{sub J} components. The polarizabilities are obtained by a numerical finitefield technique applying weak external electric fields. Special relativity is accounted for in the fourcomponent Dirac framework. Two largescale configuration interaction programs which can be applied either including or neglecting spindependent terms in the Dirac Hamiltonian, respectively, are used for the treatment of dynamic electron correlation. Coupled cluster calculations are performed for obtaining highly accurate J=(1/2) groundstate polarizabilities and for calibrating the configuration interaction calculations.more » 
Convergence of configurationinteraction singlecenter calculations of positronatom interactions
The configuration interaction (CI) method using orbitals centered on the nucleus has recently been applied to calculate the interactions of positrons interacting with atoms. Computational investigations of the convergence properties of binding energy, phase shift, and annihilation rate with respect to the maximum angular momentum of the orbital basis for the e{sup +}Cu and PsH bound states, and the e{sup +}H scattering system were completed. The annihilation rates converge very slowly with angular momentum, and moreover the convergence with radial basis dimension appears to be slower for high angular momentum. A number of methods of completing the partial wave summore » 
Configuration interaction calculations for twoelectron atoms in a spherical box
We report calculations of the ground state (/sup 1/S) correlation energy for the two electron systems He, Li/sup +/, and Be/sup 2 +/ when they are compressed in a spherical box with infinite potential barriers. The calculations were performed using a 41 term configuration interaction expansion generated by a 6s4p4d orbital basis. It is found that although there is an increase in the correlation energy when the sphere radius becomes smaller, this increase is extremely small with respect to the change in total energy. This fact is discussed within the context of the z/sup 1/ expansion for the energy. Wemore »
