Abstract: We present an efficient numerical method for computing Hamiltonian matrix elements between nonorthogonal
Slater determinants, focusing on the most time-consuming component of the calculation
that involves a sparse array. In the usual case where many matrix elements should be calculated,
this computation can be transformed into a multiplication of dense matrices. It is demonstrated that
the present method based on the matrix–matrix multiplication attains ∼80% of the theoretical peak
performance measured on systems equipped with modern microprocessors, a factor of 5–10 better than
the normal method using indirectly indexed arrays to treat a sparse array. The reason for such different
performances is discussed from the viewpoint of memory access
