Unlike the ethylene potential energy curves (Fig. E. Casida and M. Huix-Rotllant diabatic, as it does not contain the doubly-excited configuration. The dissociation limit is also overestimated as it is usual from RKS with common xc functionals. Dressed TD-DFT (Fig. 16b) includes the double configuration. On the one hand, the avoided crossing is represented correctly. However, the gap between the 11 Σ þ g and the 21 Σ þ g is smaller than the CISD crossing. The dissociation limit, however, is not correctly represented, as dressed TD-DFT does not include the ground- to excited-state interaction.

These features are not captured by adiabatic TD-DFT (Fig. 17a). Indeed, the doubly-excited configuration is missing, Fig. 17 Potential energy cuts of the S0, S1, and S2 states of ethylene along the twisting coordinate: x-axis in degrees, y-axis in eV. All the curves have been shifted so that the ground-state curve at 0 corresponds to 0 eV. The solid lines correspond to a CASSCF(2,2)/MCQDPT2 calculation, and the dashed lines to the different models using the BH&HLYP functional and the Tamm–Dancoff approximation.

Illustrations have been given for the dissociation of H2 and for cis/trans isomerization of ethylene. We have also included a section deriving the form of the TD-DFT xc-kernel from MBPT. This derivation makes it clear that localization in space is compensated for in the exact kernel by including additional frequency dependences. In the short run, it may be that such additional frequency dependences are easier to model with hybrid MBPT/LR-TD-DFT approaches. Let us mention in closing the very similar “configuration interaction-corrected Tamm– Dancoff approximation” of Truhlar and coworkers [88].
