Re^2: How to freeze rotation of the atoms frozen with IFRZAT keyword


Dear Alex,

Thanks for your reply.
Concerning my question, I would use the keyword IFREEZ to completely
freeze the atoms, however when I do so the geometry optimization stops
after a few steps with the error that the gradient is beyond the maximum.
During these few steps the optimization procedure somehow leads to
increasing the gradient instead of decreasing it. Do you have an idea
why this happens and how one can cure this.

Best wishes,
