Fourier transform of the electron density as described by ([link] requires explicit expressions for the two-centre orbital product scattering. Such expressions are described in the literature for both Gaussian (Stewart, 1969b[link]) and Slater-type (Bentley & Stewart, 1973[link]; Avery & Ørmen, 1979[link]) atomic orbitals. The expressions can also be used for Hartree–Fock atomic functions, as expansions in terms of Gaussian- (Stewart, 1969b[link], 1970[link]; Stewart & Hehre, 1970[link]; Hehre et al., 1970[link]) and Slater-type (Clementi & Roetti, 1974[link]) functions are available for many atoms.
