Abstract: Adaptation of improved virtual orbital complete active space configuration interaction functions in state-specific multireference perturbation theory motivated by the Brillouin-Wigner perturbation scheme using Møller-Plesset multipartitioning is examined. The method, denoted as IVO-BWMRPT, focuses on only the root of principal interest at a time using single-root parameterization of Jeziorski-Monkhorst ansatz within the frame of an effective Hamiltonian. This approach yields size-extensive energy and avoids intruder-state problems in a natural manner. It allows relaxation of the reference space wave function in the presence of the perturbation which produces an important differential effect on the energy and cannot be neglected for quasidegenerate electronic states. The method has been tested against nontrivial situations such as the Be + H2 insertion profile along with the energy surfaces of FH and X2 (X = F, Cl, and Br), in which conventional single-reference methods generally fail, exhibiting very encouraging findings. We also consider the energy surfaces of ethylene (by breaking the π bond as well as the CC bond) and for the twisting of tetramethyleneethane. IVO-BWMRPT represents a rather balanced protocol for the description of molecules at a wide range of geometries, including stretched or dissociating bonds. Close agreement of our estimates with the reference values provides a useful measure for the success of the IVO-BWMRPT method to treat strongly correlated systems. Our results for TME show that the singlet state always lies below the triplet state for different conformations. The IVO-BWMRPT furnishes a compact and correct representation of the MR-wave function, and hence, a large variety of quasidegenerate situations can be accommodated within the method.
