Re^2: Question on CSFs: the same CSFs in the WF expansion


Dear Alex,

Thanks for your response.
Just curious, is it possible to retrieve (with a print option) the spin configuration of each (same) orbital configuration?

Best regards,

>>    74594   -0.114228  222211101000

>>   118407    0.162652  222121110000

>>As can be seen, CFSs 67033 and 74594 as well as 88706 and 118407 look the same, though contribute with different coefficients. I guess these are let's say \alpha \alpha \beta \beta and \alpha \beta \beta \alpha configurations, i.e. double-excitation of the parallel and anti-parallel by spin electrons (like in MP2). Is it possible to say which of the same configurations corresponds to excitation of parallel and anti-parallel electrons?
