We propose a density functional perturbative scheme to approximate the energy of a high-level DFT calculation at a significantly reduced cost. Our approach involves performing a primary SCF calculation using a crude functional, basis set and quadrature grid, followed by a single step using a more sophisticated secondary functional, basis and grid. Unlike the earlier dual-level DFT approach of Nakajima and Hirao, we use Roothaan diagonalization instead of perturbation theory to incorporate the...[Show more]
