Abstract/Description: Restricted Hartree-Fock (RHF) theory has been used to investigate the optical properties of cubic nanoparticles, which can serve as a model for plasmonic nanoparticles, using a finite jellium model. Optical investigations were carried out using real-time time-dependent Hartree-Fock theory and configuration interaction with single excitations for validation against each other. An investigation was also carried out to determine the effect that the spatial symmetry of the system plays in the computational effort required to generate the necessary one and two electron integrals. Additionally, the spatial symmetry was investigated for its effect on the computational effort required to solve the ground state RHF equations. Throughout these investigations, convergence of the ground state was difficult to achieve and care must be taken even after convergence to ensure that the calculations have found the ground state.
