The Coupled Cluster (CC) method is a widely used and highly successful high precision method for the solution of the stationary electronic Schrödinger equation, with its practical convergence properties being similar to that of a corresponding Galerkin (CI) scheme. This behaviour has for the discrete CC method been analyzed with respect to the discrete Galerkin solution (the “full-CI-limit”) in [Schneider, 2009]. Recently, we globalized the CC formulation to the full continuous space, giving a root equation for an infinite dimensional, nonlinear Coupled Cluster operator that is equivalent the full electronic Schrödinger equation [Rohwedder, 2011]. In this paper, we combine both approaches to prove existence and uniqueness results, quasi-optimality estimates and energy estimates for the CC method with respect to the solution of the full, original Schrödinger equation. The main property used is a local strong monotonicity result for the Coupled Cluster function, and we give two characterizations for situations in which this property holds.
