First order nonadiabatic coupling matrix elements between excited states: implementation and application at the TD-DFT and pp-TDA levels

First order nonadiabatic coupling matrix elements between excited states: implementation and application at the TD-DFT and pp-TDA levels

Journal of Chemical Physics 141(24): 244105-244105

The recently proposed rigorous yet abstract theory of first order nonadiabatic coupling matrix elements (fo-NACME) between electronically excited states [Z. Li and W. Liu, J. Chem. Phys. 141, 014110 (2014)] is specified in detail for two widely used models: The time-dependent density functional theory and the particle-particle Tamm-Dancoff approximation. The actual implementation employs a Lagrangian formalism with atomic-orbital based direct algorithms, which makes the computation of fo-NACME very similar to that of excited-state gradients. Although the methods have great potential in investigating internal conversions and nonadiabatic dynamics between excited states of large molecules, only prototypical systems as a first pilot application are considered here to illustrate some conceptual aspects.
