An Alternative to Full Configuration Interaction Based on a Tensor Product Decomposition
1989) An Alternative to Full Configuration Interaction Based on a Tensor Product Decomposition. Technical Report TR-89-14, Computer Science, Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University. (
A new direct full variational approach exploits a tensor (Kronecker) product decompositions of the Hamiltonian. Explicit assembly and storage of the Hamiltonian matrix is avoided by using the Kronecker product structure to form matrix-vector products directly from the molecular integrals. Computation-intensive integral transformations and formula tapes are unnecessary. The wave function is expanded in terms of spin-free primitive sets rather than Slater determinants or configuration state functions and is equivalent to a full configuration interaction expansion. The approach suggests compact storage schemes and algorithms which are naturally suited to parallel and pipelined machines.
