This work proposes a new procedure for localizing molecular and natural orbitals. The localization criterion presented here is based on the partitioning of the overlap matrix into atomic contributions within the theory of "fuzzy" atoms. Our approach has several advantages over other schemes: it is computationally inexpensive, preserves the(More)
This work proposes the use of the treatment referred to as fuzzy atoms to describe three-center bond indices within studies of electron population analysis. A simple manipulation of our algorithms reported previously for describing multicenter bondings enables us to introduce this methodology in our mathematical framework, providing suitable numerical(More)
In this paper we propose a functional of the many-body cumulant of the second-order reduced density matrix within the spin-free formalism of quantum chemistry which quantifies the idea of electron correlation and allows one to detect spin entanglement. Its properties are rigorously stated and discussed for spin-adapted pure states. Numerical determinations(More)
New solutions of the homogeneous wave equation of the type usually referred to as relatively undistorted waves are presented. Such solutions relate to the so-called “splash modes”, from which indeed they can be generated by applying the Laguerre polynomial operator. Accordingly, the solutions here presented resort to the relativistic Laguerre polynomials —(More)
This article provides a detailed study of the structure and bonding in closo-borane cluster compounds X2B3H3 (X = BH(-), P, SiH, CH, N), with particular emphasis on the description of the electron distribution using the topology of the quantum many-body effectively unpaired density. The close relationship observed between the critical points of this(More)
We present a configuration interaction method in which the Hamiltonian of an N-electron system is projected on Slater determinants selected according to the seniority-number criterion along with the traditional excitation-based procedure. This proposed method is especially useful to describe systems which exhibit dynamic (weak) correlation at determined(More)
This work extends the concept of seniority number, which has been widely used for classifying N-electron Slater determinants, to wave functions of N electrons and spin S, as well as to N-electron spin-adapted Hilbert spaces. We propose a spin-free formulation of the seniority number operator and perform a study on the behavior of the expectation values of(More)
This work deals with the Fukui and dual reactivity descriptors within the framework of the spin-polarized density functional theory. The first and second derivatives of the electron density and the spin density with respect to the total number of electrons N = Nα + Nβ and with respect to the spin number NS = Nα-Nβ have been formulated by means of reduced(More)
In this report we provide a theoretical support for the existence of nonclassical 3-center bonding recently invoked to explain the structure of protonated phosphorus and arsenic X4H + clusters.For this purpose the electron structure of these clusters was analysed using the formalism of the generalized population analysis, in terms of which the eventual(More)
This work formulates our previously reported partitionings of the first-order reduced density matrix and the molecular electronic energy using for both quantities an identical mathematical framework. The procedure provides a consistent and rigorous scheme for extending our algorithms to unions of atomic domains, in order to describe molecular fragments(More)
