Effective and fast algorithms for calculating rate constants for internal conversion (IC) and intersystem crossing (ISC) in the Franck-Condon and Herzberg-Teller approximations have been developed and implemented. The methods have been employed for calculating IC and ISC rate constants for the pyrromethene-567 dye (PM567), heterocirculene (4B) and free-base porphyrin (H2P). The fluorescence quantum yields obtained by comparing calculated rate constants for the radiative and non-radiative processes are in good agreement with experimental data.
