Abstract: We present in this paper two new versions of Rayleigh-Schr¨odinger (RS) and the Brillouin-Wigner (BW) state-specific multi-reference perturbative theories (SSMRPT) which stem from our state-specific multi-reference coupled-cluster formalism (SS-MRCC), developed with a complete active space (CAS). They are manifestly sizeextensive and are designed to avoid intruders. The combining coefficients cμ for the model functions φμ are completely relaxed and are obtained by diagonalizing an effective operator in the model space, one root of which is the target eigenvalue of interest. By invoking suitable partitioning of the hamiltonian, very convenient perturbative versions of the formalism in both the RS and the BW forms are developed for the second order energy. The unperturbed hamiltonians for these theories can be chosen to be of both Mφller-Plesset (MP) and Epstein-Nesbet (EN) type. However, we choose the corresponding Fock operator fμ for each model function φμ, whose diagonal elements are used to define the unperturbed hamiltonian in the MP partition. In the EN partition, we additionally include all the diagonal direct and exchange ladders. Our SS-MRPT thus utilizes a multi-partitioning strategy. Illustrative numerical applications are presented for potential energy surfaces (PES) of the ground (1Σ+) and the first delta (1Δ) states of CH+ which possess pronounced multi-reference character. Comparison of the results with the corresponding full CI values indicates the efficacy of our formalisms.
