Re^9: Problem getting NEDA fragment converged

Adebayo A. Adeniyi

Dear Prof Alex,


It seems to me that NAO  has not yet been included in the NBO part of the FIREFLY as you promised when I first brought this case up. I still got the error message again:
NEDA can only be performed in NBO or NLMO basis
