ADC(2)/COSMO oscillating macro-iteration
« on: July 04, 2017, 12:42:16 am »
Hi,

I'm trying to calculate the vertical absorption spectrum of a solvated molecule using ADC(2)/cosmo in Turbomole 7.01 using the following set-up:

$ricc2
  adc(2)
  maxiter=  300
$excitations
  irrep=a  multiplicity=  1  nexc=  6  npre=  12  nstart=  12
  exprop relaxed states=all
$response
  fop relaxed
$cosmo
  epsilon=   80.10
  refind=   1.3000
  cosmorel state=(x)
# nofast

The calculation seems to work well and give reasonable "intermediate" results but the problem is that the CC2 macro-iteration doesn't converge but keep oscillating between two solutions:

# all values without outlying charge correction
# (outlying charge corrected values can be found in the output file)
#
# cycle    E(total)           E(diel MP2)           E(MP2)      delta charge (rms) delta charge(max)

What could be the cause of this oscillation and how can I force it to converge.

Thanks,
