The approximate spin projection method of Amos et al. is extended to handle UHF wavefunctions having three significant components of differing multiplicity. An expression is given for the energy after single annihilation which differs from that of Amos and Hall. The' new expression reproduces the results obtained from a previous exact calculation for which the weights and energies of the components are known, The extended approximate projection method is applied to the pi-electron UHF wavefunctions for the gr…
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
