Correlation

```Electronic correlation
• VB method and
polyelectronic
functions
• IC
• DFT
The charge or spin interaction between 2
electrons is sensitive to the real relative
position of the electrons that is not
described using an average distribution. A
large part of the correlation is then not
available at the HF level. One has to use
polyelectronic functions (VB method), post
Hartree-Fock methods (CI) or estimation
of the correlation contribution, DFT.

Electronic correlation
A of the correlation refers to
HF: it is the “missing energy”
for SCF convergence:
Ecorr= E – ESCF
Ecorr< 0 ( variational principle)

Fermi hole – Coulomb hole
Each electron should be surrounded by an “empty
volume” excluding the presence of another electron
– of the same spin (Fermi hole)
– of opposite spins (Coulomb hole)
In HF, the Probability of finding an electron with the same spin
at the same place is 0; that of finding an electron with  spin
is not!
P(↑↑⁭⁭)2=dV1dV2/2 [a2(r1)b2(r2)+a2(r2)b2(r1)-2a(r1)b(r2)a(r2)b(r1)]
P(⁭⁭↑↑⁭)2 = 0 for r1 = r2
P(⁭⁭↑↓)2=dV1dV2/2 [a2(r1)b2(r2)+a2(r2)b2(r1)]
P(⁭⁭↑↓²⁭⁭)2  0 for r1 = r2
This term vanishes for ⁭↓
HF account for the Fermi hole not the Coulomb hole!
7
Correlation Left-Right
The probability of finding 1 electron in
the left region and one in the right is 1.
In HF it is only ½;
Taking into account correlation reduces
the probability of finding the electrons
together; it decreases the weight of the
ionic contribution.

Fritz
Wolfgang
London
German
1900–1954
To satisfy Pauli principle this symmetric expression is associated
with an antisymmetric spin function: a (1).b(2) - a(2).b(1)
this represents a singlet state!
Each atomic orbital is occupied by one electron: for a bond, this
represents a covalent bonding.
11
The triplet state
The total function has to be antisymmetric; for a triplet state since
the spin is symmetric, the spatial function has to be antisymmetric.

The Valence-Bond method
It consists in describing electronic states of a
molecule from AOs by eigenfunctions of
S2, Sz and symmetry operators. There
behavior for dissociation is then correct.
These functions are polyelectronic. To
satisfy the Pauli principle, functions are
determinants or linear combinations of
determinants build from spinorbitals.

Valence Bond
Make the list of all the resonance structures. (a complete
treatment necessitates considering all of them).
To each one is associated a VB expression (and a Lewis
structure).
• Rule 1: electrons belonging to a pair have opposite spins
• Rule 2: bonds are represented by covalent singlet functions
• Rule 3: The total wavefunction is antisymmetric relative to
exchange of spins (symmetric relative to exchange of
electrons).
• The VB functions interact to give linear combinations
(coefficients and energies are obtained through a variational
principle and a secular determinant)
• The square of the coefficients are the weights of the VB
structure

Both structures contribute to the
bonding, equally for MOs or
when K is neglected:
(1+S) (aa+bb)+(1-S) (ab+ba)
There is 1 electron in each orbital
so that the density is the same:
In the middle plane, the amplitude is not zero for the two VB
structures. When they combine equally, they double (bonding
state) or vanish (antibonding state).
35
Resonance & covalence,
The ionic VB structure: H+  H(aa+bb) matches better the description of electron
pairs, the two electrons being located at the same

All the matrix elements are bielectronic terms

Many of them are equal to zero.

For a single excitation, the terms are the offdiagonal terms of the Fock-matrix, which are 0
for HF eigenfunctions.
There is no mixing between the GS and the

Mind the spatial symmetry
Only determinants with the same symmetry
interact.
To perform an IC:
Generate all the configurations
corresponding to an electronic state
(solutions of Sz and S2) and eliminate
those that are of different symmetry.
46
Full symmetry, truncated symmetry
Since it is expensive, instead of making a full IC, one
restricts the “space of configuration” to a small space.
Note that VB includes more physics in truncations.

Which linear combination of sg2 and

sg2 and su2 are 50% covalent and 50% ionic:
sg = 1/√2 (aa+bb) + 1/√2 (ab+ba)

The square of
the coefficents
is the weight
su2 = 1/√2 (aa+bb) - 1/√2 (ab+ba)
= lsg2+msu2 =(l+m)/√2(aa+bb)+(l-m)/ √ 2(ab+ba)
(l+m)2/2) = 0.2
(l-m)2/2 = 0.8
(l+m)2 = 0.4
(l-m)2 = 1.6
l = 0.9467
m = -0.3162
The diexcitation allows flexibility between covalency and
ionicity.
51
VB vs. IC
Both methods are equivalent provided that
• The same basis set are used
• there is no simplification (truncation of the # of VB
structures or limited IC)
They both take into account correlation and allow mixing
covalent and ionic contributions in variable amounts.
• Close to Lewis structures and chemical language
• Easier to visualize and then easier for making
approximation
• Many efficient softwares
• Less thinking

Density Functional Theory
What is a functional? A function of another function:
In mathematics, a functional is traditionally a map from a
vector space to the field underlying the vector space,
which is usually the real numbers. In other words, it is a
function that takes a vector as its argument or input and
returns a scalar. Its use goes back to the calculus of
variations where one searches for a function which
minimizes a certain functional.
E = E[r(r)]
E(r) = T(r) + VN-e(r) + Ve-e(r)
54
Thomas-Fermi model (1927): The kinetic energy
for an electron gas may be represented as a
functional of the density.
It is postulated that electrons are uniformely distributed in space.
We fill out a sphere of momentum space up to the Fermi value,
4/3 p pFermi3 . Equating #of electrons in coordinate space to that
in phase space gives:
n(r) = 8p/(3h3) pFermi3
and
T(n)=c ∫ n(r)5/3 dr
T is a functional of n(r).

56
First theorem: on existence
The first H-K theorem demonstrates that the ground state properties of
a many-electron system are uniquely determined by an electron
density.
It lays the groundwork for reducing the many-body problem of N electrons with
3N spatial coordinates to only 3 spatial coordinates, through the use of
functional of the electron density.
This theorem can be extended to the time-dependent domain to develop timedependent density functional theory (TDDFT), which can be used to describe
excited states.
The external potential, and hence the total energy, is a unique
functional of the electron density.
57
First theorem on Existence : demonstration
The external potential, and hence the total energy, is a unique
functional of the electron density.
The proof of the first theorem is remarkably simple and proceeds by reductio
Let there be two different external potentials, V1 and V2 , that
give rise to the same density r. The associated Hamiltonians,H1
and H2, will therefore have different ground state wavefunctions,
1 and 2, that each yield r.
E1 < < 2 IH 1I 2 > = < 2 IH 2I 2 > + < 2 IH1 -H 2I 2 >
= E2 + ∫ r(r)(V1(r)- V2(r))dr
E2 < < 1 IH 2I 1 >
= E1 + ∫ r(r)(V2(r)- V1(r))dr
E1 + E2 < E1 + E2
Therefore ∫ r(r)(V1(r)- V2(r))dr=0 and V1(r) = V2(r)
The electronic energy of a system is function of a single
electronic density only.
58
Second theorem: Variational principle
The second H-K theorem defines an energy functional for the
system and proves that the correct ground state electron density
minimizes this energy functional :
If r(r) is the exact density, E[r(r)] is minimum and we
search for r by minimizing E[r(r)] with ∫ r(r)dr = N
r(r) is a priori unknown
As for HF, the bielectronic terms should depend on two
densities ri(r) and rj(r) : the approximation r2e(ri,rj) =
ri(ri) rj(rj) assumes no coupling.

Equation 2: Using an effective potential, one has a
one-body expression.
The intractable many-body problem of interacting electrons
in a static external potential is reduced to a tractable problem
of non-interacting electrons moving in an effective potential.
The effective potential includes the external potential and the
effects of the Coulomb interactions between the electrons,
e.g., the exchange and correlation interactions.

DFT
Advantages : much less expensive than IC or VB.
Disadvantages: less reliable than IC or VB.
One can not compare results using different
functionals*. In a strict sense, semi-empical,not abinitio since an approximate (fitted) term is
introduced in the hamiltonian.
* The variational priciples applies within a given functional and not
to compare them. The only test for validity is comparison with
experiment, not a global energy minimum!
