Abstract

We present an implementation for large-scale relativistic electronic structure calculations including spin-dependent contributions and electron correlation in a fully variational procedure. The modular implementation of the double group configuration interaction (CI) program into a multiconfiguration self-consistent-field (MCSCF) code allows for the treatment of large CI expansions in both the spinor optimization step and the post-MCSCF dynamic electron correlation step. As an illustration of the potential of the new code, we calculate the spectroscopic properties of the U O2 molecule where we study the ground state and a few excited states in vertical and adiabatic calculations. © 2006 American Institute of Physics.
