Abstract : The Coupled Cluster Theory Electron Correlation Workshop 'Fifty Years of the Correlation Problem' was held at Cedar Key, Florida, from June 1519, 1997, to recognize the essential developments for one of the dominant topics in the quantum theory of atoms, molecules, and solids. The instantaneous Coloumbic interactions among electrons that correlate their motion (the electron correlation problem) has been the focal point of ab initio quantum chemistry and physics for many years. Only with the proper inclusion of electron correlation in approximate solutions of the Schroedinger (or DiracFock) equation is it possible to provide predictive accuracy for most properties of atoms and molecules. Such quantities include energetics (involving multiplets, dissociation pathways, and activation barriers), excited states and first and secondorder properties (like moments, field, gradients, polarizabilitles, and magnetic susceptibilities), and vibrational, electronic, EPR and NMR spectra, among others.
