4. Computational Complexity and memory footprint

Two objects of size \(\mathcal{O}{(N_\mathrm{o}^2 N_\mathrm{v}^2)}\) are stored in main memory. The computational complexity should be negligible as is of order \(\mathcal{O}{(N_o^2 N_v^2)}\).

5. Theory

The implemented expression assumes Hartree–Fock one-electron energies and can be found in Ref.(Moller and Plesset 1934).
