``` Hi,
The range-separated Coulomb integral
1/r = erf(k*r)/r + (1-erf(k*r))/r
arises in range-separated hybrid functionals.
There are many papers about functionals that use this kind of
range-separation.
My question is regarding the 2-electron integral terms (i.e., exchange
and Coulomb integrals)
using this type of range separation. Does anyone know where the analytic
forms for this have been published?

Range-separation is not used for Coulomb integrals. It's only used for the exchange integrals.
` `
``` They should be of the form
<g1(r1)*g2(r1)*(erf(k*r)/r)*g3(r2)*g4(r1)>
where <> means integrate over positions r1 and r2 and g1, g2, g3, g4 are
Gaussian basis sets.
We are actually trying to do the analogous Coulomb/exchange integrals
for electrons confined to a plane (i.e., two-dimensional Gaussians), but
we maybe could figure out how to do this by looking at the
three-dimensional case.
I would be grateful if anyone could provide references on the
mathematical derivations of the analytic integrals for the
three-dimensional case.

``` Implementations in Q-Chem and Gaussian are documented AFAIK in
Adamson, Dombroski, Gill; JCC 9, 921 (1999)
and
Heyd, Scuseria, Ernzerhof; JCP 118, 8207 (2003)
```
Both are based on a trivial modification of the PRISM algorithm for range-separated functionals. The only change is that the recursion relations are modified a tiny bit.
` `
Obara-Saika recursion relations can also be modified in the same manner: just by a small change to the (00|00)^m auxiliary integrals, where you get a second Boys function term with a slightly different prefactor.
