Abstract

Random phase approximation ground state contains electronic configurations where two (and more) identical electrons can occupy the same molecular spin-orbital violating the Pauli exclusion principle. This overcounting of electronic configurations happens due to quasiboson approximation in the treatment of electron-hole pair operators. We describe the method to restore the Pauli principle in the RPA wavefunction. The proposed theory is illustrated by the calculations of molecular dipole moments and electronic kinetic energies. The Hartree–Fock based RPA, which is corrected for the Pauli principle, gives the results of comparable accuracy with Møller-Plesset second order perturbation theory and coupled-cluster singles and doubles method.
