Integral dependent spin‐couplings are constructed which yield one spin coupling per product of orbitals and which reproduce the energy through third order. These couplings yield about 98.5% of the correlation energy obtained by using all spin couplings. Extension of this method to multireference zeroth order states requires little extra effort.

The H atom basis was one contracted Gaussian (α = 33.6444, 5.057 96, 1.1468; c = 0.025 374, 0.189 683, 0.852 93) and two uncontracted Gaussians (α = 0.321 144, 0.101 309) all scaled by 1.2.
