6. Computational complexity

This algorithm is a post-processing algorithm. However, the 2nd-order energy is re-evaluated and other operations of the same computational complexity are performed. The memory footprint is also in the order of a 2nd-order energy calculation.

7. Theory

This algorithm evaluates a correction to the basis-set-incompleteness error (BSIE) of CCSD correlation energies as descibed in Ref. (Irmler, Gallo, and Grüneis 2021). The algorithm requires the converged CCSD amplitudes together with δ-integrals. Futhermore, a complete-basis-set-limit estimate of the MP2 pair-correlation-energies is needed.

As discussed in Ref. (Irmler, Gallo, and Grüneis 2021), the CCSD-BSIE in a finite basis-set calculation is primarily due to the 2nd-order term, and the so-called particle-particle ladder (ppl) term. There exists a variety of algorithms which allow a reliable CBS estimate for the 2nd-order term at modest computational costs (compared to a the corresponding CCSD calculation for the same system). The missing ppl BSIE contribution is approximated using a pair-specific expression which requires the MP2 pair-correlation-energies, CCSD amplitudes, as-well-as the δ-integrals. The implemented ppl-correction is defined by Eq.(31) in Ref. (Irmler, Gallo, and Grüneis 2021) . The provided CCSD-BSIE energy correction is the sum of the 2nd-order energy correction and the ppl-correction-term.
