Re: geometry optimization for RESP

Alex Granovsky


First, you need to use coord=unique instead of coord=cart (this keyword can be found in the $contrl group):

 $contrl coord=unique $end

Second, you need to increase the amount of memory available to Firefly, say:

 $system mwords=100 $end

Next, most likely you do not need to use the following options:

 $STATPT  OPTTOL=1.0E-06 HESS=CALC IHREP=10 $END                             

Just specify:

 $STATPT  OPTTOL=1.0E-5 $END                             

Moreover, I'd suggest to loosen requested precision a bit (I doubt if you really need it for your purposes).


 $contrl ICUT=11 ITOL=20 $end
 $SCF   DIRSCF=.T. NCONV=6 $END                             

Finally, you need to use fast mp2 code. For that, you need to add

 $mp2 method=1 $end

to your input.

Hope this helps.

Kind regards,
Alex Granovsky
