Abstract: An efficient nuclear molecular orbital methodology is presented. This approach combines an auxiliary density functional theory for electrons (ADFT) and a localized Hartree product (LHP) representation for the nuclear wave function. A series of test calculations conducted on small molecules exposed that energy and geometry errors introduced by the use of ADFT and LHP approximations are small and comparable to those obtained by the use of electronic ADFT. In addition, sample calculations performed on (HF) n chains disclosed that the combined ADFT/LHP approach scales cubically with system size (n) as opposed to the quartic scaling of Hartree-Fock/LHP or DFT/LHP methods. Even for medium size molecules the improved scaling of the ADFT/LHP approach resulted in speedups of at least 5x with respect to Hartree-Fock/LHP calculations. The ADFT/LHP method opens up the possibility of studying nuclear quantum effects on large size systems that otherwise would be impractical. © 2012 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.
