Dear Sir,

I have got the PUNCH file now from TDDFT output file.

I was seeing the $TDVEC group. It was told that there are 2*NSTATE records in the PUNCH file. In my case, NSTATE=10. I found only 10 records. Some of the text is below:

$TDVEC

Here as you said, "X" and "Y" are mentioned alternatively, X from 1st line onwards. I am unable to understand the size of the matrix (X or Y). Here "X" has 5 numbers. How to visualize this matrix?

Also, NVIR and NOC were talked about. Are these the "number of alpha and beta orbitals"? In this case it is 206 then?

Please elaborate about the construction of matrix. In case if PUNCH file is needed, I will send it privately, if only you permit.

Regards,

>>Dear Alex,

>>Sorry for asking you again. There is a relation between transition density and transition dipole. So please pardon me if I ask:: Will extracting Transition dipole moment matrix serve the purpose of pointing out "spatial location of the transition from ground to excited state"? It is a NSTATE*NSTATE matrix as you told too.

I would request you to elaborate the process for the same. Right now I dont have any punch file with me. Can you explain with the help of any punch file? Once that is clear, I will look for the program.
