Re^2: Unphysical XMCQDPT2 energies when scanning along normal coordinate


Dear Alex,

thank you so much for the great support you are giving on this forum!

I noticed the quasilinear dependence, but it seemed small to me, so I
did not expect such severe consequences to the XMCQDPT2 step.

Thanks again and best regards,
