Atoms and ions of Lanthanides have multiple opens shells along with an open $4f^k$ subshell. This paper studies the effect of electron correlation in such systems and how wave functions can be determined for the accurate prediction of atomic properties in the case of Ce$^{2+}$ where $k=2$, using the multireference single- and double-excitation method. An efficient higher-order method is recommended for more reliable results.

Natural orbitals in multiconfiguration calculations of hyperfine-structure parameters
We are reinvestigating the hyperfine structure of sodium using a fully relativistic multiconfiguration approach. In the fully relativistic approach, the computational strategy somewhat differs from
Multiconfiguration Dirac–Hartree–Fock radiative parameters for emission lines in Ce ii–ivions and cerium opacity calculations for kilonovae
Large-scale calculations of atomic structures and radiative properties have been carried out for singly, doubly- and trebly ionized cerium. For this purpose, the purely relativistic
Spectral line list of potential cosmochronological interest deduced from new calculations of radiative transition rates in singly ionized thorium (Th ii)
In this work, we report a list of 91 strong Th ii spectral lines in the visible wavelength region that could be used as cosmochronometers in future investigations to determine stellar ages from
Numerical Procedures for Relativistic Atomic Structure Calculations
Variational methods are used extensively in the calculation of transition rates for numerous lines in a spectrum. In the GRASP code, solutions of the multiconfiguration Dirac–Hartree–Fock (MCDHF)

The 1s 2 2s 2 ground-state energies of berylliumlike systems are calculated with a full-core plus correlation method and the predicted Be I, C III, N IV, and 0 V ionization potentials are within the quoted experimental error.
Combining configuration interaction with perturbation theory for atoms with a large number of valence electrons
A version of the configuration interaction (CI) method is developed which treats highly excited many-electron basis states perturbatively, so that their inclusion does not affect the size of the CI
Correlation effects in La, Ce, and lanthanide ions

Saturated-configuration-interaction calculations for five-valent Ta and Db
Accurate atomic structure calculations of complicated atoms with 4 or more valence electrons begin to push the memory and time limits of supercomputers. This paper presents a robust method of
JJ2LSJ Transformation and Unique Labeling for Energy Levels
The JJ2LSJ program, which is important not only for the GRASP2K package but for the atom theory in general, is presented and a procedure that assigns a unique label to all energy levels is implemented.
Combining Multiconfiguration and Perturbation Methods: Perturbative Estimates of Core–Core Electron Correlation Contributions to Excitation Energies in Mg-Like Iron
Large configuration interaction (CI) calculations can be performed if part of the interaction is treated perturbatively. To evaluate the combined CI and perturbative method, we compute excitation
Interpretation of the Spectrum of Ce III. New Energy Levels and Theoretical Transition Probabilities
The analysis of CeIII was checked and extended with the support of parametric studies of the mixed configurations in both parities by means of the chain of programs by Cowan. Ten new levels and more
Atom-at-a-time laser resonance ionization spectroscopy of nobelium
Optical spectroscopy of a primordial isotope has traditionally formed the basis for understanding the atomic structure of an element. Such studies have been conducted for most elements and
