Problems with PABOON MAO selection options
« on: May 11, 2011, 05:03:22 pm »


I have problems to change the paboon mao selection options. I would like to change the threshold for the eigenvalues to 0.05 for the selection of the numbers of MAOs.

I tried several possibilities and failed.

When I use one of the following commands

$mao selection eig threshold=0.05 or
$mao selection threshold=0.05

in the control file, the number of MAOs is selected by the mix (default) option

When I type in

$mao selection eig thr=0.05 or
$mao selection thr=0.05 or
$mao selection eig thr 0.05

the following is given in the output

CHOICE OF MAOs:
MAOs are selected due to their eigenvalues; determination of their number:

 i/o-error : input variable is not real


 WARNING : <rdebbs> could not read properly from string
ction eig thr=0.05 info

 if the eigenvalue is greater than   0.100000000000000

 ...

and the MAOs are sorted by the eigenvalue > 0.1 criteria.

I also tried to select the desired option via the old moloch menu. As I understood you can only change the global options for the MAOs selection.
The number of the MAOs is selected by the mix (default) option.

Can you give me some hints how I can overcome these problems? Iím just doing RIBP86/SV(P) single point calculations.

Thank you in advance.

I'm sorry. I forgott to say that I'm using the Turbomole 6.3 version.

Hi,

$mao selection thr 0.05

is supposed to work, so if it does not it's a bug. Write to COSMOlogic to get a bug fix.

Alternatively using moloch for the same purpose will work. While the moloch module is obsolete meanwhile it is still part of the usual Turbomole distribution.

Two possibilities:
  • With define: Use define to generate the input and enter the prop sub-menu of the last GENERAL Menu and enter old to get to

      old   : old menu for moloch

    and follow the instructions to get the population analysis submenu. In

    specify the appropriate option if you want to use another
     global criterion for selecting MAOs

     option  | status | description
     --------|--------|---------------------------------------
     eig <r> |    T   | select by eigenvalues of the
             |        | 'atomic' density matrices
     occ <r> |    F   | select by occupation numbers
     --------|--------|---------------------------------------
     <r> is the selection threshold (DEFAULT=0.5000E-01)
     * or q(uit) : leave this menu


    enter

    eig 0.05

    Unfortunately you have to change the control file by hand first since define writes out ancient keywords. Search for

    $mao selection
     global  method = eig    threshold = 0.5000E-01


    to

    $mao selection threshold 0.05

    and then run moloch > output. To check if your threshold has correctly been used search for the lines

      atom   maos  criterion  keyword  threshold
        1      ?      eig               0.0500
        2      ?      eig               0.0500
        3      ?      eig               0.0500


    in the moloch output.
  • Without define: The same as above, just without calling define... After a usual calculation add (if not present anyway):

    $properties
        population analyses                active
    $paboon
    $mao selection threshold 0.05


    to the control file and run moloch > output.


Regards,

Uwe

hi,

the second and third possibility is working.

thank you very much.

Dear Uwe,
  Is it possible to select the MAOs by their occupation number? I tried many times but it always select the "eig" option. Below iare some part of input and out put files. I am using Turbomole 6.4.
Input
$properties
    trace                              off
    moments                            off

      ao-basis
    plot                               off
    firstorder                         off
    fit                                off
    wfn                                off
$paboon
 momao
$mao selection occ threshold = 0.5000E-01
$shared electron numbers
 irreps
 2-center  threshold =   0.0100
 3-center  threshold =   0.0100

 e1u     1                                      ( 2 )
