Title: Solving the non-relativistic time-independent Schrodinger equation for a system of nuclei and electrons

Abstract: I will present a method for numerically approximating the solution to the problem above called the Hartree-Fock method. I will state the required definitions and techniques needed in order to obtain the Hartree-Fock equations but will not carry out the details as it is too time consuming. If time permits, the SCF Procedure will be mentioned. This is an algorithm for solving the Hartree-Fock equations.
