Sources for LCAO theory?

  1. Jun 1, 2005 #1
    any of you guyes know some decent sources for tight-binding (LCAO) theory?
    i wish to use the orbitals and the position of the atoms and the angle between the orbitals for calculating the resonance and overlap integrals, but it's hard to find specific sources... so if you happen to know any sources about this i would be very gratefull if you posted a few links...

    This is just a guess...There is a large blue book called something like "Atoms and Molecules" by Weissbluth that probably discusses it. I haven't actually read the book, but it seems to cover so much that I'd be surprised if it didn't have something.

    Quantum Chemistry by John P. Lowe, 2ed, Academic Press. It covers LCAO, SCF, and MO methods in Chapter 11.
