optimisation from hessian
« on: January 22, 2007, 09:45:42 am »
I would like ask you how can I start optimisation (ri-mp2) from hessian optimized DFT. Which method will be the bast.
 My strukture  has 30 atmos, 440 basis functions, it's open shell. Please for answer.

best regards

It is possible to use a calculated Hessian matrix for structure optimizations.

1. When using Jobex/Relax combination you have to modify the $forceinit section
of the "control" file to
Additionally, if you use internal coordinates you have to activate the conversion
of force constants matrix from Cartesian to internals by specifying
$interconversion on
   cartesian --> internal  hessian
in the "control" file.
The details are also described in the TM manual under
"Calculation of Molecular Structure and Ab Initio Molecular Dynamics"

2. In the Jobex/Statpt combination the calculated Hessian matrix will
automatically be used if any of the sections $hessian, $hessian (projected),
or $nprhessian is present in the "control" file.
