An approach to the systematic neglect of the smallinvalue electron repulsion integrals which is used in a number of approximate selfconsistent field molecular orbital schemes. It means that all the products of atomic orbitals χ µ χ ν are set to zero and the overlap integralS µ ν = δ µ ν (where δ µ ν is the Kronecker delta). The ZDO approximation greatly simplifies the computation of wavefunctions by eliminating many of twoelectron integrals. At the ZDO approximation all three and fourcentered integrals vanish.
