Re^3: Separating dispersion and binding energy

Alex Granovsky

Dear Pejer,

May it be the case you double count dispersion contribution to DFT energy for dimer?

B97D functional includes version 2.0 DFT-D correction by default.

Firefly incorporates DFT-D correction into nuclear energy term
and as such correction is already included into E(SCF) i.e. E(B97D).  
This means that the binding energy is simply:

E(AB) - E(A) - E(B)

provided that BSSE contribution to energy is small.

Hope this helps.

Kind regards,
Alex Granovsky
