Localized orbital scaling correction functional ushering DFT to a new level of accuracy

Kohn-Sham density functional theory is one of the most successful theories in chemistry. It is formally rigorous; its relatively low computational cost and competitive accuracy in small and medium-sized systems make it one of the most popular methods in electronic structure calculations, and perhaps the only choice for modeling quantum effects of electrons in large chemical and biological systems.
