Abstract

Off-diagonal hypervirial relationships, combined with quantum mechanical sum rules of charge-current conservation, offer a way to test electronic excited-state transition energies and moments, which does not need any external reference. A number of fundamental relationships were recast into absolute deviations from zero, which have been used to assess the performance of some popular DFT functionals. Extended TD-DFT calculations have been carried out for a pool of molecules chosen for this purpose, adopting a large basis set to ensure high quality results. A partial agreement with previous benchmarks is observed.
