The strategy of using expansions in spherical harmonics of displaced Slater-type orbitals for the evaluation of multicenter molecular integrals is reviewed and projected. Our Lwdin alpha-function method is augmented by computer algebra and C, E, and F matrices with rational elements. This permits exact evaluations of each term in an infinite sum using a commercial computer algebra program to investigate the three-center nuclear attraction integral. Each term (harmonic potential) is important for proposed use in numerical evaluations of multicenter integrals.
