Re: An inquiry about GDIIS

Dear Leira,

Without mentioning any technical details (which I do not know), I can say that GDIIS usually works better than the RFO and QA methods, i.e. it finds stationary points faster and more reliably. The performance of GDIIS is especially superior on flat parts of the potential energy surface. As such, GDIIS is the recommended method.


Kind regards,
Thom
