© 2015 Elsevier Inc.Electron repulsion integral tensor has ubiquitous applications in electronic structure computations. In this work, we propose an algorithm which compresses the electron repulsion tensor into the tensor hypercontraction format with O(nN2logN) computational cost, where N is the number of orbital functions and n is the number of spatial grid points that the discretization of each orbital function has. The algorithm is based on a novel strategy of density fitting using a selection of a subset of spatial grid points to approximate the pair products of orbital functions on the whole domain.
