The electronic structure of atoms plays a crucial role in various fields, such as plasma physics, atomic clocks, and quantum computing. Many applications in these fields rely on the electronic transition from one state to another, and it is essential to know the nature of such states and their separation energy. In this project, we use the Multi-Reference Moller-Plesset (MRMP) method to accurate calculate the energy levels of i) the L-shell ions of C, N, O, Ne, Mg, Si, S, and Ar with one K-shell vacancy and ii) selected M-shell ions of Fe with one L-shell vacancy.
