Re^2: ghow to set dummy atom


Dear All,

While the solution suggested by Thom to set dummy atoms in Cartesian coordinates work perfectly, could someone please suggest a way to do the same in internal coordinates?

>Dummy/ghost atoms are described in the manual on page 75. In short, a ghost atom is specified by placing a negative sign in front of the charge. An example:


O 8.0 -1.411087 -1.022605 -1.001415
H 1.0 -2.196224 -0.454859 -1.004828
H 1.0 -1.111711 -1.052794 -1.922420
O -8.0 0.616682 0.473774 0.420136
H -1.0 0.973421 -0.026190 1.167563
H -1.0 -0.051557 -0.112528 0.012392

>>firstly I must thank all of you that I have successfully successfully install and able to run it after using -I command as suggested by granovsky. however I like to ask how can we specify a dummy atom which would have orbitals but no electrons and thus charges. Gaussian has this options but did firefly implemented this. I must say this is equivalent to counterpoise correction calculating bsse energy.  any help will be appreciated.
