Abstract

Equations providing the first and second derivatives of a configuration interaction (CI) energy with respect to an external parameter are provided. We assume no restriction on the form of the CI expansion built from molecular orbitals obtained in a multiconfiguration Hartree-Fock (MCHF) calculation. Also, the coupled perturbed multiconfiguration Hartree-Fock formalism is presented for a general MCHF wave function and provides the first order and second order changes of the molecular orbital expansion coefficients with respect to an external parameter.
