Quantum Chemistry Approaches to the Electron Correlation Problem

Ken Jordan
University of Pittsburgh

This talk presents an overview of the range of wave function methods that are important in quantum chemistry applications. The methods considered include many-body perturbation theory, configuration interaction, and coupled cluster theory. A brief discussion of the quantum Monte Carlo and symmetry-adapted perturbation theory approaches for analyzing intermolecular interactions will also be presented.
