For the treatment of the electronic correlation in the ground state of a solid (polymer) an approximate form of the CI method is proposed. According to this suggestion the energy levels forming a band can be subdivided into different regions on the basis of the density of states curve of the band and by investigating the k-dependence of the atomic populations due to the particular band. The integral of the density of states curve over these regions will provide then a weight factor for the bunchs of energy levels falling into a certain region.
