Slater-type orbitals (STOs) are functions used as atomic orbitals in the linear combination of atomic orbitals molecular orbital method. They are named after the physicist John C. Slater, who introduced them in 1930.
Additional recommended knowledge
STOs have the following radial part:
The normalization constant is computed from the integral
It is common to use the real form of spherical harmonics depending on the polar coordinates θ and φ as the angular part of the Slater orbital.
