We have derived and implemented a universal formulation of the second-order generalized Møller–Plesset perturbation theory (GMP2) for spin-dependent (SD) two-component relativistic many-electron Hamiltonians, such as the infinite-order Douglas–Kroll–Hess Hamiltonian for many-electron systems, which is denoted as IODKH/IODKH. Numerical assessments for He- and Ne-like atoms and 16 diatomic molecules show that the MP2 correlation energies with IODKH/IODKH agree well with those calculated with the four-component Dirac–Coulomb (DC) Hamiltonian, indicating a systematic improvement on the inclusion of relativistic two-electron terms. The present MP2 scheme for IODKH/IODKH is demonstrated to be computationally more efficient than that for DC.
