This paper reviews popular acceleration techniques to converge the non-linear self-consistent field equations appearing in quantum chemistry calculations with localized basis sets. The different methodologies, as well as their advantages and limitations are discussed within the same framework. Several illustrative examples of calculations are presented. This paper attempts to describe recent achievements and remaining challenges in this field.

The Coupled Cluster (CC) method is a widely used and highly successful high precision method for the solution of the stationary electronic Schrödinger equation, with its practical convergence properties being similar to that of a corresponding Galerkin (CI) scheme. This behaviour has for the discrete CC method been analyzed with respect to the discrete Galerkin solution (the “full-CI-limit”) in [Schneider, 2009]. Recently, we globalized the CC formulation to the full continuous space, giving a root...

The ground-state energy and properties of any many-electron atom or molecule may be rigorously computed by variationally computing the two-electron reduced density matrix rather than the many-electron wavefunction. While early attempts fifty years ago to compute the ground-state 2-RDM directly were stymied because the 2-RDM must be constrained to represent an N-electron wavefunction, recent advances in theory and optimization have made direct computation of the 2-RDM possible. The constraints in...

The present work is a mathematical analysis of two algorithms, namely the Roothaan and the level-shifting algorithms, commonly used in practice to solve the Hartree-Fock equations. The level-shifting algorithm is proved to be well-posed and to converge provided the shift parameter is large enough. On the contrary, cases when the Roothaan algorithm is not well defined or fails in converging are exhibited. These mathematical results are confronted to numerical experiments performed by chemists.

We present an interacting particle system methodology for the numerical solving of the Lyapunov exponent of Feynman–Kac semigroups and for estimating the principal eigenvalue of Schrödinger generators. The continuous or discrete time models studied in this work consists of $N$ interacting particles evolving in an environment with soft obstacles related to a potential function $V$. These models are related to genetic algorithms and Moran type particle schemes. Their choice is not unique. We will examine...

Nowadays, the Coupled Cluster (CC) method is the probably most widely used high precision method for the solution of the main equation of electronic structure calculation, the stationary electronic Schrödinger equation. Traditionally, the equations of CC are formulated as a nonlinear approximation of a Galerkin solution of the electronic Schrödinger equation, i.e. within a given discrete subspace. Unfortunately, this concept prohibits the direct application of concepts of nonlinear numerical analysis...
