We present a linear-scaling method for analytically calculating static and dynamic polarizabilities with Hartree-Fock and density functional theory, using Gaussian orbitals and periodic boundary conditions. Our approach uses the direct space fast multipole method to evaluate the long-range Coulomb contributions. For exact exchange, we use efficient screening techniques developed for energy calculations. We then demonstrate the capabilities of our approach with benchmark calculations on one-, two-, and three-dimensional systems.
