I have asked this question on the MRCC forum but did not get an answer.

I am trying to understand how to use CFOUR with the MRCC program for computing dynamic polarizability. To begin with, I am trying the simple system of $\ce{H2}$.

The input passed to the CFOUR program is given below. This program finishes with error which is given in the second block.

The full output file is available here.

Could someone clarify what would be the correct way to get this done? (I can run test calculations if I receive suggestions.)


Updates:

  1. Last few lines of fort.55 file

  2. Error in the dmrcc execution was found to be related to the compiler (dmrcc: error while loading shared libraries: libmkl_intel_ilp64.so: cannot open shared object file). After fixing it by setting the correct compilers before execution, the output received is this. Last few lines are shown below.

    $\begingroup$ When you asked this on the MRCC forum, Mihaly Kallay (primary author of MRCC) told you to delete the MINP file, then you replied with a new message, where you say that you "supplied an MINP file". This output file that you're showing, has no error message. The last 2 lines say that you're running (invoking) dmrcc (which reads the MINP file) and then the dmrcc program finished. Since you're using INPUT_MRCC=ON please follow Mihaly's suggestion and remove your supplied MINP file. Otherwise, use INPUT_MRCC=ON and run dmrcc manually (not from CFOUR). Is there a fort.55 file written? $\endgroup$ – Nike Dattani Jul 26 '20 at 15:58
  • $\begingroup$ I meant OFF not ON for the last INPUT_MRCC keyword. You used ON and the last sentence suggests a way to do it with OFF. $\endgroup$ – Nike Dattani Jul 26 '20 at 18:25
  • $\begingroup$ For the above execution, MINP file was not supplied. In the folder where the xcfour executable was run, there was only the input ZMAT file. As seen for the error in dmrcc run, the error code 127 is received, I noticed that an error is also generated as dmrcc: error while loading shared libraries: libmkl_intel_ilp64.so: cannot open shared object file. I am looking into this now. $\endgroup$ – ankit7540 Jul 27 '20 at 1:43

    $\begingroup$ I would say this was a sourcing error rather than a compiler error. Anyway, I'll have to try to run your input file to see if I get anywhere. Sorry it will take a while because I don't have any computers at the moment. $\endgroup$ – Nike Dattani Jul 27 '20 at 2:21

    $\begingroup$ If it helps at all, NWChem can do CCSD, CCSDT and CCSDTQ linear response dynamic polarizabilities with RHF, ROHF and UHF references. The CCSDT stuff is demonstrated in dx.doi.org/10.1063/1.2929840. I didn't write a paper on the CCSDTQ stuff but it was used in dx.doi.org/10.1063/1.3263604. Note that you need very strict convergence to get the same answer in both for CCSDTQ. $\endgroup$ – Jeff Hammond Dec 1 '20 at 15:35

I have got your calculation successfully completed:

  The final electronic energy is        -0.928161992153724 a.u.    This 
  computation required                          318.38 seconds (walltime).

My output (and input) files are here. They are the same as yours, except my ZMAT uses my basis set database, which I don't think will make a difference for you, since your output file did not complain about the basis set. If you want to try what I did, just run xcfour with my ZMAT file, and make sure you have my GENBAS file (hyperlinked above) in the same folder. Nothing else was different in my ZMAT.

I ran the job like this:

export PATH=$PATH:/pool/nike/MRCC
export PATH=/pool/dattani/MRCC:$PATH
export PATH=$PATH:/pool/nike/cfour_v2.00beta/bin
export PATH=$PATH:/pool/dattani/cfour_v2.00beta/bin

xclean
xcfour > out.1

These are the possible reasons why your job failed:

  • You may want to run xclean before running CFOUR.
  • I'm using CFOUR v2.00 Beta, and you're using CFOUR v1.2

    $\begingroup$ Thanks. Your output does print out the asked property ( dynamic polarizability ) in the end. :-) $\endgroup$ – ankit7540 Jul 27 '20 at 11:22
