Re^3: Help needed with the Transition density matrix determination and analysis....

Pavlo Solntsev


TDM you can get for MCSCF/XMCQDPT jobs. I am not sure about DFT. By default TDM is not available in the output file. Probably, Alex may answer your question regarding DFT/TDDFT level of theory.

>>>Dear Users,
>>>I wish to know about the determination of Transition density matrix. How do we extract it from the o/p data? Do we need to mention any special command to get the same? If no, then how to search for it in the o/p file? What all we can infer using it? Someone please throw some light on it.

>>>Kind Regards,
