A new approach, motivated by Fock space localization, for constructing a reduced many-particle Hilbert space is proposed and tested. The self-consistent Hartree-Fock approach is used to obtain a single-electron basis from which the many-particle Hilbert space is constructed. For a given size of the truncated many particle Hilbert space, only states with the lowest number of particle-hole excitations are retained and exactly diagonalized. This method is shown to be more accurate than previous truncation methods, while there is no additional computational complexity.
