Hello,

I am interested in a open-shell scf/dft calculation (with the dscf module)

for a system wich belongs to a non-Abelian point group. The open-shell is degenerate: 1 electron

over 3 degenerate orbitals. In this case, I assume it is more correct to specify partil equal

occupation (1/3) for these 3 orbitals (which would keep their degeneracy)

rather than placing 1 electron on one of these orbitals (which would destroy

the degeneracy). I wonder if the calculation with partial occupations (done with dscf) is in this case

basically equivalent to a GVB calculation? (I mean the same mashinary as in GVB is used).

Thanks!

Best regards,

Evgeniy
