While there are ground state equilibrium and excited state non-equilibrium solvent approaches, it is confusing for these reasons:
- a default tddft/pcm calculations seems to lead to a LR-response to solvation, no state specific correction or fast solvent response
- it seems that state specific approach is only possible during non-equilibrium solvation which results in 0th order and perturbative LR and SS energies.
- So with a simple pt-ss approach, with simple default ground state equilibrium is not possible (as is possible for LR as mentioned in point 1)
It will be of great help if clarified, thanks!!
