Couple Cluster Methods

In the past we have developed efficient coupled-cluster methods for closed-shell and open-shell systems. Our current focus is to extend the applicability of these methods to larger molecules using local approximations, as well as to improve their accuracy by explicit correlation treatments (see more information there).
