Re^2: Regarding the CITYP=TDDFT calculation for the excited state

Dear Alex,
Thank you for the information. ISTATE as I know is for the singlet state.
But still my doubt is not clear. I want to know that does using cityp=tddft, runtype=optimize actually optimizes FIRST OR LOWEST GROUND STATE? If,yes then how do I ensure that it is the first excited state only. After optimization, what I get is the optimized coordinates...but I am unsure about whether they belong to first excited state or not.
The final aim is to find vertical transition from this state to the gnd state.

Regards,

 $TDDFT ISTATE=1 $END
