Consider a quantity of some liquid, say, a drop of water, that is composed of N individual molecules. To describe the geometry of this system if we assume the molecules are rigid, each molecule must be described by six numbers: three to give its position and three to describe its rotational orientation. This 6Ndimensional space is called phase space. Dynamical calculations must additionally maintain a list of velocities. An individual point in phase space, denoted by q, corresponds to a particular geometry of all the molecules in the system.

The second requirement is that the wave function for fermions (an electron is a fermion) must be antisymmetric with respect to interchanging two particles. Thus, if electron 1 and electron 2 are switched, the sign of the total wave function must change and only the sign can change. This is satis®ed by a determinant because switching two electrons is equivalent to interchanging two columns of the determinant, which changes its sign. The functions put into the determinant do not need to be individual GTO functions, called Gaussian primitives.

The central pillar of electrostatics is Coulombs law, which is the mathematical description of how like charges repel and unlike charges attract. The Coulombs law equations for energy and the force of interaction between two particles with charges q1 and q2 at a distance r12 are Eˆ q1 q2 r12 …2X1† Fˆ q1 q2 2 r12 …2X2† Note that these equations do not contain the constants that are typically included in introductory texts, such as the vacuum permitivity constant. Theoreticians, and thus software developers, work with a system of units called atomic units.
