The accuracy of core excitation energies and core electron binding energies computed within a Δself-consistent-field framework is assessed. The variational collapse of the core excited state is prevented by maintaining a singly occupied core orbital using an overlap criterion called the maximum overlap method. When applied to a wide range of small organic molecules, the resulting core excitation energies are not systematically underestimated as observed in time-dependent density functional...[Show more]
