An alternative basis set for analytical computation of two electron integrals

It is well known that the usage of the Gaussian basis set, in contrast to Slater basis set, leads relative simple semi-analytical expressions for the two electron repulsion integral $(ab|cd)$. Could ...

Which computational method/basis set should I use for small molecular ions?

I apologize for a perhaps newbie question. I would like to compute the potential energy surface for several small molecular ions, like $\ce{H2+}$ and $\ce{H3+}$, using quantum chemistry software. ...

Naming of quantum chemistry basis sets

For some DFT calculations I performed with localized (Gaussian) basis sets, I wonder how the basis sets I used are properly named. The names I could gather are: H, C and O: 6-311G(d,p) Al: 8-511G* ...

Are Pulay forces expensive to compute?

In a thesis I am reading, it is said that one of the reasons for using plane-wave basis sets for first-principles molecular dynamics (aka ab initio MD) is that the Pulay forces[1,2] that arise from an ...
