Re^2: About PCM in Firefly

Alex Granovsky

Dear Panwang,
Dear Thom,

XMCQDPT2 can be run with PCM provided that a MCSCF computation
is followed by a XMCQDPT2 computation within a single job.

In this case, XMCQDPT2 will use modified one-electron Hamiltonian
i.e. the standard one plus PCM contributions.

Note that:

1. The reaction field will not be self-consistent at the XMCQDPT2 level, but only at the MCSCF.

2. As already mentioned by Thom, for SA-MCSCF, the reaction field
is computed for the state-averaged density matrix at moment.

We'll be definitely extending the allowed possibilities for XMCQDPT2
plus PCM in the future.

Kind regards,
Alex Granovsky
