The multiconfigurational spin tensor electron propagator method (MCSTEP): Electron affinities of Li, Na, and K Academic Article uri icon

abstract

  • The multiconfigurational spin tensor electron propagator approximation to the electron propagator is applied for the first time to the calculation of electron affinities. The electron affinities of Li, Na, and K are calculated as the ionization potentials of the negative ions. On average these electron affinities differ from experiment by 0.003 eV, giving the best theoretical values reported to data. © 1989 American Institute of Physics.
