Calculating highly accurate thermochemical properties of condensed matter via wave-function-based approaches (such as, e.g., Hartree-Fock or hybrid functionals) has recently attracted much interest. We here present two strategies providing accurate Hartree-Fock energies for solid LiH in a large Gaussian basis set and applying periodic boundary conditions. The total energies were obtained using two different approaches, namely, a supercell evaluation of Hartree-Fock exchange using a truncated Coulomb operator and an extrapolation toward the full-range Hartree-Fock limit of a PadĂŠit to a series of short-range screened Hartree-Fock calculations. These two techniques agreed to signficant precision. We also present the Hartree-Fock cohesive energy of LiH (converged to within sub-millielectron volt) at the experimental equilibrium volume as well as the Hartree-Fock equilibrium lattice constant and bulk modulus.
