A Variational Monte Carlo Approach to Atomic Structure
Davis, Stephen L.
Journal of Chemical Education, v84 n4 p711 Apr 2007
The practicality and usefulness of variational Monte Carlo calculations to atomic structure are demonstrated. It is found to succeed in quantitatively illustrating electron shielding, effective nuclear charge, l-dependence of the orbital energies, and singlet-tripetenergy splitting and ionization energy trends in atomic structure theory.
