A new method based on the penalty-function way of satisfying equality constraints is proposed for the determination of constrained pure state one-electron density matrices for closed-shell many-electron systems. The algorithm suggested can handle many constraints simultaneously. Certain interesting features of the proposed algorithm are discussed with numerical examples.

A viable strategy is developed for the general variational calculation of excited state wavefunctions which are constrained to remain

It is demonstrated that a generalized version of the orthogonal gradient method of orbital optimization may sometimes encounter a specific divergence problem which may be termed intrinsic to the first order method. Instead of switching over to a more sophisticated second order method one can cure the divergence problem at the first order level itself by suitably tailoring the MC-SCF operator or the MC-SCF energy matrix. Results of complete geometry optimization of propynal inl,3nπ* and3ππ* states (pathological cases) are reported to demonstrate the usefulness of the method at an INDO-MCSCF level of approximation. The results of structure calculations are further rationalized from generalized quantum chemical bond order indices.

The quality of wavefunctions obtained by the Fourier grid Hamiltonian (FGH) method is analyzed. The criteria used for judging the quality are the extent to which virial, hypervirial and Hellmann-Feynman theorems are satisfied by the numerically computed FGH-wavefunction. The quality of the FGH-wavefunction is also examined from the point of view of local error in the wavefunction. It is shown that high quality wavefunctions can be obtained from the FGH recipe if the grid length (

Bound state population dynamics in a diatom modelled by an appropriate Morse oscillator with a time-dependent well-depth is investigated perturbatively both in the absence and presence of high intensity radiation. For sinusoidally oscillating well-depth, the population of the
