Abstract
We propose a scheme to obtain a system-dependent fraction of exact exchange (α) within the framework of hybrid density functional theory (DFT) that is consistent with the G0W0 approach, where G0 is the noninteracting Green function of the system and W0 the screened Coulomb interaction. We exploit the formally exact condition of exact DFT that the energy of the highest occupied molecular orbital corresponds to the ionization potential of a finite system. We identify the optimal α value for which this statement is obeyed as closely as possible and thereby remove the starting point dependence from the G0W0 method. This combined approach is essential for describing electron transfer (as exemplified by the TTF/TCNQ dimer) and yields the vertical ionization potentials of the G2 benchmark set with a mean absolute percentage error of only ≈3%.
