Re^4: Regarding usage of NONVDW...

Alex Granovsky

To be precise: NONVDW only affects a coordinate system in use.
It does not affect any well-defined molecular properties (such as
energy, dipole moment etc... ) provided that the Cartesian
coordinates are kept frozen in comparison. It does affect those
(badly defined) properties that depend on the coordinate system in
use. For instance, the result of energy minimization on a PES having
complex structure and more than one minimum may depend on the
coordinate system in use and hence can be affected by NONVDW.

Kind regards,
