# Roothaan equations and Galerkin method

When we do Hartree-Fock computations by solving the Roothaan equations $$FC = SC \varepsilon$$ is it a Galerkin method?

• Also, I think this question is a good fit here, but if you have any questions about electronic structure theory that don't pick up steam here, I would say you should try to ask them on Matter Modeling SE Dec 12, 2021 at 22:02
