# Accurate atomic correlation and total energies for correlation consistent effective core potentials.

@article{Annaberdiyev2020AccurateAC, title={Accurate atomic correlation and total energies for correlation consistent effective core potentials.}, author={Abdulgani Annaberdiyev and Cody A. Melton and M Chandler Bennett and Guangming Wang and Lubos Mitas}, journal={Journal of chemical theory and computation}, year={2020} }

Very recently, we introduced a set of correlation consistent effective core potentials (ccECPs) constructed within full many-body approaches. By employing significantly more accurate correlated approaches we were able to reach a new level of accuracy for the resulting effective core Hamiltonians. We also strived for simplicity of use and easy transferability into a variety of electronic structure methods in quantum chemistry and condensed matter physics. Here, as a reference for future use, we…
