The electronic structure of Eu2+ compounds results from a complex combination of strongly correlated electrons and relativistic effects as well as weak ligand–field interaction. There is tremendous interest in calculating the electronic structure as nowadays the Eu2+ ion is becoming more and more crucial, for instance, in lighting technologies. Recently, interest in semiempirical methods to...
