Manuscript Title: A determinant based full configuration interaction program.
Authors: P.J. Knowles, N.C. Handy
Program title: FCI
Catalogue identifier: ABHV_v1_0
Distribution format: gz
Journal reference: Comput. Phys. Commun. 54(1989)75
Programming language: Fortran.
Computer: CONVEX C210.
Operating system: CONVEX UNIX 6.2.
Word size: 64
Peripherals: disc.
Keywords: Quantum chemistry, Configuration Interaction, Molecular physics, Structure.
Classification: 16.1.

Nature of problem:
Benchmark calculations for quantum chemistry.

Solution method:
Diagonalisation of the full CI Hamiltonian matrix. A vectorised determinant-based full CI algorithm is used to compute the action of the Hamiltonian on a trial wavefunction.

Size of problem limited by available CPU time and the requirement to hold in memory two vectors the length of the CI expansion.

Running time:
Problem dependent
