Small clusters of aluminum and tin: highly correlated calculations and validation of density functional procedures.

We present results of molecular electronic structure treatments of multireference configuration interaction (MRCI) type for clusters Al(n) and Sn(n) in the range up to n = 4, and of coupled cluster singles and doubles with perturbative triples corrections (CCSD(T)) type in the range up to n = 10. Basis sets of quadruple zeta size are employed, computed… CONTINUE READING
