Re: Excited-state geometry optimization with numerical gradients

Alex Granovsky

Dear Dawid,

 $XMCQDPT2 istate=2 $END 

is the valid way to specify that you requests optimization of a second root.
This can be done differently (using $numgrd input) but this is not necessary.

Kind regards,
Alex Granovsky
