Re: EFP in MCSCF calculations

Alex Granovsky

Dear Evgeniy,

Sorry for the delayed reply.

  Comment on MCSCF is still relevant for state-averaged MCSCF
calculations, because computed reaction field as well as gradients
on fragments corresponds to state-averaged density matrices
i.e. they are not state-specific . This is a known limitation of
present Firefly's EFP code which will be removed in future versions.

 As to DFT, sure it is possible to use it with EFP.

Kind regards,
Alex Granovsky

>I am interested in EFP calculations. As the manual says one can use EFP with SCFTYPE=RHF, MCSCF. At the same time, there is a comment that EFP with MCSCF is "a grey area". Is this comment still relevant? Also I guess one can use EFP with DFT, can't one?
