Approximate molecular relativistic Dirac-Coulomb calculations using a simple Coulombic correction

Research output: Contribution to JournalArticleAcademicpeer-review


A simple point-charge model is used to correct molecular four-component Dirac-Coulomb calculations which neglect two-electron integrals over the small components of the wave function. The calculated valence properties show no degeneration relative to the full calculation, while a speed-up factor of 3 is obtained.
