In a recent work [P. Baudin and K. Kristensen, J. Chem. Phys. 144, 224106 (2016)], we introduced a local framework for calculating excitation energies (LoFEx), based on second-order approximated coupled cluster (CC2) linear-response theory. LoFEx is a black-box method in which a reduced excitation orbital space (XOS) is optimized to provide coupled cluster (CC) excitation energies at a reduced computational cost. In this article, we present an extension of the LoFEx algorithm to the calculation…

Reduced-scaling correlation methods for the excited states of large molecules: implementation and benchmarks for the second-order algebraic-diagrammatic construction approach.
The presented reduced-scaling algorithm allows us to carry out correlated excited-state calculations using triple-zeta basis sets with diffuse functions for systems of up to 400 atoms or 13000 atomic orbitals in a matter of days using an 8-core processor.
Reduced-Scaling Approach for Configuration Interaction Singles and Time-Dependent Density Functional Theory Calculations Using Hybrid Functionals.
The approach is the adaptation of the local density fitting scheme developed for Hartree-Fock calculations for excited states and reduces the quartic scaling of the methods to cubic, which enables excited-state calculations on a single processor even for molecules of 1000 atoms.

LoFEx - A local framework for calculating excitation energies: Illustrations using RI-CC2 linear response theory.
The results demonstrate the black-box nature of the LoFEx approach and show that significant computational savings can be gained without affecting the accuracy of CC2 excitation energies.
A local framework for calculating coupled cluster singles and doubles excitation energies (LoFEx-CCSD)
ABSTRACT The recently developed Local Framework for calculating Excitation energies (LoFEx) is extended to the coupled cluster singles and doubles (CCSD) model. In the new scheme, a standard CCSD
Local CC2 electronic excitation energies for large molecules with density fitting.
A combination of the local approximations and the powerful density-fitting technique leads to a low-scaling method, capable to treat molecular systems comprised of 100 atoms and more in a basis of a polarized double zeta quality.
Oscillator Strengths in ONIOM Excited State Calculations.
Being able to calculate both the transition energy and the oscillator strength, ONIOM represents a promising approach to completely characterize valence excited states of molecules that are too large to be studied with a conventional high-accuracy method.
Transition strengths and first-order properties of excited states from local coupled cluster CC2 response theory with density fitting.
It turned out that for calculating transition strengths and properties of excited states the ordinary Boughton-Pulay domains are insufficient in numerous cases, so a new scheme for extending domains is proposed, which is based on the solution of the coupled perturbed localization and Hartree-Fock equations.

Link atom bond length effect in ONIOM excited state calculations.
It is shown that the same guidelines used in ONIOM ground state calculations can also be followed in excited state calculations, and that the link atom bond length has little effect on the OnIOM energy when a sensible model system is chosen.

It is demonstrated that the accuracy of this scheme can be significantly improved by including the close pair LMP2 amplitudes in the LCCSD equations, as well as in the perturbative treatment of the triples excitations.
