There are still the nuclear repulsion energy and the two electron repulsion
energy. The total energy is:
E_tot = <t> + <v_nuc> + E_nuc + <2e-terms>
where:
t is the electronic kinetic energy
v_nuc is the energy due to the interaction of the atom cores
with the electrons
E_nuc = \sum_{a,b!=a} Z_a Z_b/||R_a-R_b|| is the electrostatic
repulsion of the atom cores amongst themselves.
2e-terms is the energy due to the interaction of the electrons with
each other
For RHF, the 2e-terms are again given by j + k, which are effective 1-particle
operators representing the mean field Coulomb potential due to the electrons
and Pauli repulsion (k=exchange operator). For general theories these
2e-terms look more complicated would require the 2-RDM for an exact
evaluation as general property expectation value.
