Re^7: Facing memory issue in BSSE calculations.

Alex Granovsky

Dear Siddheshwar,

I'm sorry for delay with my reply.

Non-zero NZVAR is not required for hessian runs unless you are
requesting one of PURIFY, PRTIFC, or DECOMP keywords in $FORCE
group, see the description of $FORCE group in the Firefly_input_v2.txt
file which is coming as a part of Firefly's documentation.

Setting NZVAR=0 normally does not speed up hessian computations much
but allows to avoid huge memory allocation requests caused by
automated DLC generation for the pathological cases of very compact 2D
and 3D structures like your typical objects are.

Hope this helps.

Kind regards,
Alex Granovsky

Firefly ran properly for E(A)ab, but strangely giving memory error for E(B)ab (notations are as per the manual). Why is this happening? and how to get over it. Please guide me.
