We report an efficient implementation of a second-order multireference perturbation theory based on the driven similarity renormalization group (DSRG-MRPT2) [C. Li and F. A. Evangelista, J. Chem. Theory Comput. 11, 2097 (2015)]. Our implementation employs factorized two-electron integrals to avoid storage of large four-index intermediates. It also exploits the block structure of the reference density matrices to reduce the computational cost to that of second-order Møller-Plesset perturbation…

Driven similarity renormalization group: Third-order multireference perturbation theory.

The efficient implementation of the DSRG-MRPT3 based on factorized electron repulsion integrals enables studies of medium-sized open-shell organic compounds and leads to a non-iterative algorithm with O(N6) scaling, which includes reference relaxation effects.

It is found that the DSRG-MRPT2 can describe the potential energy curves of HF and N2, and the singlet-triplet gap of p-benzyne with an accuracy similar to that of other multireference perturbation theories.

Second-order perturbation theory with a density matrix renormalization group self-consistent field reference function: theory and application to the study of chromium dimer.

The DMRG-CASPT2/cc-pwCV5Z calculations were performed with a large (3d double-shell) active space consisting of 28 orbitals and addressed the problems of why the dissociation energy is largely overestimated by CASPT2, and also is oversensitive to the choice of the zeroth-order Hamiltonian.

It is shown that this approximation reproduces results obtained with the full integral set to a high accuracy, thus opening the possibility to use this approach to perform multiconfigurational wave-function-based quantum chemistry on much larger systems relative to what has been possible until now.

Analytical energy gradients for second-order multireference perturbation theory using density fitting.

For cases in which the total cost is dominated by the integral evaluations and transformations, the DF-CASPT2 gradient calculations are found to be faster than the corresponding conventional calculations by typically a factor of three to five using triple-ζ basis sets, and by about a factors of ten using quadruple-η basis sets.

Calculations using the CASSCF based CT method with single and double operators for the potential energy curves for water and nitrogen molecules, the BeH(2) insertion reaction, and hydrogen fluoride and boron hydride bond breaking consistently yield quantitative accuracies typical of equilibrium region coupled cluster theory, but across all geometries, and better than obtained with multireference perturbation theory.
