Résumé

An analytical method was elaborated to compute the second derivative of the Hartree-Fock energy with respect to the unit cell length (Ỹ) in stereoregular polymers. The evaluation of Ỹ was performed in a single-shot calculation once the optimal geometry is known. The formulas necessary to calculate cell and mixed Hessians of individual one- and two-electron integrals were implemented efficiently. A seven-step CPHF procedure was used to obtain the derivatives of the density matrix in a fashion consistent with the SCF procedure. Using an adapted long-range effects scheme and efficient quadrature methods for transforming k-space density matrix and its derivatives into their real-space counterparts, an accuracy of 10-9 a.u. was obtained on the final Hessian elements.
