N2 - We report a production level implementation of pair atomic resolution of the identity (PARI) based second-order Møller-Plesset perturbation theory (MP2) in the Slater type orbital (STO) based Amsterdam Density Functional (ADF) code. As demonstrated by systematic benchmarks, dimerization and isomerization energies obtained with our code using STO basis sets of triple-ζ-quality show mean absolute deviations from Gaussian type orbital, canonical, basis set limit extrapolated, global density fitting (DF)-MP2 results of less than 1 kcal/mol. Furthermore, we introduce a quadratic scaling atomic orbital based spin-opposite-scaled (SOS)-MP2 approach with a very small prefactor. Due to a worst-case scaling of [Formula: see text], our implementation is very fast already for small systems and shows an exceptionally early crossover to canonical SOS-PARI-MP2. We report computational wall time results for linear as well as for realistic three-dimensional molecules and show that triple-ζ quality calculations on molecules of several hundreds of atoms are only a matter of a few hours on a single compute node, the bottleneck of the computations being the SCF rather than the post-SCF energy correction.
