Re: Freeze cartesian coordinates and optimise using DLC?

Alex Granovsky

Dear Neil,

yes this is possible. Use DLCS, and in addition use
$statpt ifreez(1)=... array to specify components of the
molecular Cartesian coordinate vector to freeze. Note, this
will typically negatively affects the convergence of geometry optimization process.

Alternatively, you can look at the $zmat ifrzat array that
is described in several places on the forum.

Kind regards,
