Re^2: Can we restart an improperly shut down calculation???

Siddheshwar Chopra

Dear Alex,
My jobs particularly involve geometry optimization, numerical hessian jobs, finding raman, using DFT, TDFT , mostly. Sir, I need to know the code which I have to add to my Restart i/p file, WHICH WOULD START THE CALCULATION FROM WHERE IT WAS CRASHED (OR STOPPED).. Please make me understand this well. I would be grateful if you could send me an i/p file or the commands..
