Re: Use of the same initial orbitals during geometry optimization with MCSCF

Alex Granovsky

Dear Evgeniy,

Firefly always uses re-orthogonalized orbitals form the previous geometry step.
It is impossible to force the use of re-orthogonalized initial guess orbitals throughout entire geometry optimization.

Kind regards,
Alex Granovsky
