Richard H. Squire, Norman H. March and Angel Rubio Are there really cooper pairs and persistent currents in aromatic molecules? International Journal of Quantum Chemistry 114
Electron correlation can be defined as the difference between the Hartree–Fock and the experimental energy. This article proposes that enhanced correlation is achieved in benzene by electrons forming pseudobosons (Cooper pairs) due to the exclusion principle. The resulting low- energy ground state is the best use of the available phase space.
