Modern Quantum Chemistry: Introduction to Advanced Electronic Structure Theory

By Attila Szabo, Neil S. Ostlund

This book is a fundamental reading for those who want to enter the world of the electronic structure methods. Linear Algebra and other mathematics tools are given at the beginning of the book to facilitate the reader’s understanding.

The Hartree-Fock approximation is exhaustively explained in the first chapters, whereas more sophisticated methods such as full CI or other electronic structure methods that introduce electron correlation are the topics of the other chapters.

It’s a must-read book!
