Re^2: MCSCF interpretation

Alex,

Thank you for a quick answer. One more questions about the size of Hef in XMCQDPT. If i have SA-MCSCF solution over two doublets, do i need to examine Hef with size more than 2, by using nstate=n ?

If i have quartet state very close to the second doublet, which is very close to the ground doublet. How do you think, is it good approach to do SS over two doublets and one quartet and then run XMCQDPT for doublets and quartets. In this case, for quartets i have Hef = 1. I am going to check the effect of the triplet state on the reference MCSCF. Maybe you have seen this situation before.

Sincerely,
Pavel.
