Re^3: 3 State conical intersection

Alex Granovsky


This will not work. CI optimization will reach a point where state 2
and state 3 become quasi-degenerated and then start oscillating
between points where the third state corresponds either to the
diabatic state #2 or to the diabatic state #3

Kind regards,
Alex Granovsky

And if it does, I haven't been successful to locate a stationary point in 2000 or 3000 stationary point locations.
