Re: D4d symmetry in GAMESS

Hello,

dihedral groups like Dnd are a bit tricky. The correct input file is as follows:

 $CONTRL SCFTYP=RHF  MULT=1  ICHARG=0 $END
 $BASIS  GBASIS=TZV  $END
 $DATA
 Li8
Dnd       4

LITHIUM     3.0      0.607522059        -1.466687995        -2.116708996
 $END

I have also attached a sample picture showing that X and Y axes
direction is along C2 axes and this why your input file was
not correct.

Kind regards,
Alex Granovsky
