Re^4: Error about RSURFACE:GRADIENT OUT OF RANGE

Alex Granovsky
gran@classic.chem.msu.su


Dear Prof. Fumihito Mohri,

I'm sorry for delay with my reply.

Indeed, 5,6,6,16 was an overkill, though overkill of that type should
not negatively impact scan process.
Normally, it is better to define a bit more vdW pairs than actually
needed rather than define a bit less than needed. I do this just in case,
to avoid aborts during scan process due to lack of internal variables.  


As to AUTOFV option, it is indeed required by scans.
Because this option is turned on by default, it is not necessary
to specify it explicitly.


Hope this helps.


Kind regards,
Alex Granovsky
