A Detailed Derivation of Gaussian Orbital-Based Matrix Elements in Electron Structure Calculations
Petersson, T.; Hellsing, B.
European Journal of Physics, v31 n1 p37-46 Jan 2010
A detailed derivation of analytic solutions is presented for overlap, kinetic, nuclear attraction and electron repulsion integrals involving Cartesian Gaussian-type orbitals. It is demonstrated how s-type orbitals can be used to evaluate integrals with higher angular momentum via the properties of Hermite polynomials and differentiation with respect to non-integration variables.
