© 2018 Author(s). In this paper, we present the non-orthogonal configuration interaction singles (NOCIS) method for calculating core-excited states of closed-shell molecules. NOCIS is a black-box variant of NOCI, which uses A different core-ionized determinants for a molecule with A atoms of a given element to form single substitutions. NOCIS is a variational, spin-pure, size-consistent ab initio method that dramatically improves on standard CIS by capturing essential orbital relaxation effects, in addition to essential configuration interaction. We apply it to the calculation of core-excitations for several smaller molecules and demonstrate that it performs competitively with other Hartree-Fock and DFT-based methods. We also benchmark it in several basis sets.
