    This paper describes the extension of the linear-scaling divide-and-conquer (DC)-based correlation method to the coupled cluster with singles and doubles excitations (CCSD) theory. In this DC-CCSD method, the CCSD equations are solved for all subsystems including their buffer regions with the use of the subsystem orbitals, which are obtained by the DC-Hartree-Fock method. Then, the correlation energy of the total system is evaluated by summing up the subsystem contributions other than the buffer regions by the energy density analysis technique. Numerical applications demonstrate that the present DC-CCSD gives highly accurate results with drastically less computational costs with regard to the required computer memory, scratch-disk capacity, and calculation time.
