    Coupled-perturbed self-consistent-field (CPSCF) approach has been broadly used for polarizabilities and hyperpolarizabilities computation. To extend this application to large systems, we have reformulated the CPSCF equations with nonorthogonal localized molecular orbitals (NOLMOs). NOLMOs are the most localized representation of electronic degrees of freedom. Methods based on NOLMOs are potentially ideal for investigating large systems. In atomic orbital representation, with a static external electric field added, the wave function and SCF operator of unperturbed NOLMO-SCF wave function/orbitals are expanded to different orders of perturbations. We have derived the corresponding equations up to the third order, which are significantly different from those of a conventional CPSCF method because of the release of the orthogonal restrictions on MOs. The solution to these equations has been implemented. Several chemical systems are used to verify our method. This work represents the first step toward efficient calculations of molecular response and excitation properties with NOLMOs.
