    • Abstract


      A new method is described in which important intra-atomic correlation terms are approximated in a multiconfiguration self-consistent-field (mcscf) framework without generating large Hamiltonian or Fock matrices. Descrition in terms of partially localized orbitals (plo) is preferred over the ordinarily delocalized molecular orbitals (mo). A new approach is also adopted for choosing the virtual excitations as well as for calculating the vectorcoupling coefficients.
