The Fourier transform of Cartesian Gaussian functions product is presented in the light of positron scattering. The calculation of this class of integrals is crucial in order to obtain the scattering amplitude in the first Born approximation framework for an ab initio method recently proposed. A general solution to the scattering amplitude is given to a molecular target with no restriction due to symmetry. Moreover, symmetry relations are presented with the purpose of identifying terms that do not contribute to the calculation for the molecules in the \(D_{\infty h}\) point group optimizing the computational effort.

Keywords ā€” Positron and electron scattering, Fourier transform of the Gaussian product theorem, McMurchie-Davidson procedure, Obara-Saika procedure, linear molecules .
