Dear Dawid,

There is nothing wrong with your calculations.
Displacements are distributed between all xp groups, but only grand
master process (this process always belongs to the first xp group)
is allowed to write to the output file. Hence output file contains
a log of work performed by the first xp group only.


By the way, do you know that MCQDPT and XMCQDPT code is capable
to run using multithreading? For optimal performance, each xp group
must be run in smppar mode. Do you use these features?


All the best,
Alex Granovsky
