The different configurations (linear, zig-zag, and cyclic) of formamide dimers have been studied at the level of both Hartree-Fock (HF) and second order Møller-Plesset perturbation theory (MP2). The widely used a posteriori Boys-Bernardi "counterpoise" (CP) correction scheme has been compared with our a priori methods utilizing the "chemical Hamiltonian approach" (CHA). The appropriate interaction energies have been calculated in six different basis sets (6-31G, 6-31G**, DZV, DZP, TZV, and cc-pVDZ).
