Re^6: An inquiry about GDIIS

Alex Granovsky

Dear Leira,

with Firefly, GDIIS in DLCs is especially efficient as GDIIS'
engine is tightly coupled with DLC's engine so that GDIIS knows
better how to proceed in difficult cases.

Kind regards,
Alex Granovsky

GDIIS (geometry optimization using direct inversion in the iterative sub-space) is
an extrapolation method analogous to the DIIS method used for the wavefunction 
optimization. The implementation used in Firefly is unique and uses ideas presented in 
references 5 and 6. GDIIS is usually superior to RFO and QA, especially on flat regions 
on the PES. For this reason, it is the default optimizer.
