Abstract

As the simplest illustrative case of our ideas, let us consider the union of two fragments C· and L· to form the two electron-two orbital system C-L. The ground state of this system, Ψ , is described by an optimal linear combination of the three CW’s as shown below:
$$\Psi aC \bullet \bullet L + {\lambda _l}[C\bar :{L^ + }] + {\lambda _2}[{C^ + }L\bar :]$$
