Density of states of alternant cyclic polyenes (CH)(N) by a direct Lanczos method
1997 (English)In: International Journal of Quantum Chemistry, ISSN 0020-7608, E-ISSN 1097-461X, Vol. 63, no 3, 719-728 p.Article in journal (Refereed) Published
Abstract [en]

A direct full configuration interaction approach, previously used for studying individual low-lying eigenvalues, is combined with iterative Lanczos calculations, in order to obtain global properties of large Hermitean Hamiltonian matrices. To this effect systematic generation of random start vectors is used to compute statistical approximations to the density of states (DOS). Applications for cyclic polyenes in order to illustrate the viability of the scheme modeled by correlated, tight-binding Pariser-Parr-Pople (PPP) Hamiltonians of increasing complexity are presented. The degree of correlation in the solutions is controlled by the parameter beta. Convergence properties of the DOS for N=10 and N=14 are studied varying the extent of correlation.
