Title: A new approach to approximate equation-of-motion coupled cluster with triple excitations

Abstract

Accurate methods for excited, ionized, and electron-attached states are critical to the study of many chemical species such as reactive intermediates, radicals, and ionized systems. The equation-of-motion coupled cluster singles, doubles, and triples (EOM-CCSDT) family of methods is very accurate (roughly similar in accuracy as for CCSDT calculations of the ground state), but the computational cost scales iteratively as the eighth power of the system size. Many approximations already exist, although most either correct only the excited state or require an iterative $$\mathscr{O}$$(n 7) procedure which can also be prohibitively expensive. In this paper, new methods, termed EOM-CCSD(T)(a) and EOM-CCSD(T)(a)*, are proposed which correct both the ground and excited states based on a shared effective Hamiltonian, and the latter of which includes only non-iterative corrections to both the CCSD and EOM-CCSD energies. These methods are found to significantly improve the description of excited and ionized potential energy surfaces, equilibrium geometries, and harmonic frequencies; the accuracy is very close to that of full EOM-CCSDT.
