In this talk I'll presents some of the theoretical methods I developed during my research activity to improve the description of excited state properties (spectra, densities, charge transfer ...) in extended chemical and physical systems.
The first part of the talk will be mainly focused on methods able to improve the description of charge transfer states at a reasonable computational cost. Applications in the field of hybrid photovoltaic and light harvesting in general will be presented.
The second part of the talk will be focused instead on recent methods, based on the Density Matrix Renormalization Group (DMRG) numerical technique, I developed to simulate spectra of strongly correlated systems.
