Can I freeze f functions from a TZ basis set during MP2 (but not during H-F) to speed up calculations?

This is another question about my molecule; as I'm not doing this as an academical affiliate(I'm currently majoring in mathematics), I have only NWChem and my personal laptop on the mix, and thus need ...

Does the accuracy of RI-MP2 follow the higher number of zetas of the main and fitting bases?

It has been answered to my previous question that RI-MP2/cc-pVTZ/cc-pVTZ gives results of the same quality as MP2/cc-pVTZ. I then started to think about RI-MP2/cc-pVTZ/cc-pVQZ. The term "basis ...

Do the cc/pc/def2 basis sets mathematically converge to the CBS limit, assuming exact CI/DFT?

The cc-, pc- and def2- basis sets are often described as "systematic", in the sense that the results of these basis sets at different cardinal numbers (i.e. the number of ζ's) can be ...

How to perform a DFT/def2-PPCBS extrapolation on NWChem [closed]

I'm planning to analyse an extremely complex molecule on NWChem(it's practically the only free computational package available package here, and the molecule is so large that running a seemingly ...

Is basis set superposition error reduced when using the GAPW method?

CP2K implements the Gaussian and Augmented Planewaves (GAPW) approach for all-electron calculations. My understanding is that the GAPW method involves using atom-centered Gaussian type orbitals to ...

What are the some other ways to handle BSSE rather than counterpoise correction and using larger basis sets? [closed]

What one can do to eliminate basis set superposition error (BSSE) if there is no chance to use larger basis sets or counterpoise correction.

What are the scientific justifications of the binding energy equation?

There are many problems where we want to calculate the binding energy between two systems. Normally, we have a system A, adsorbent (a surface, a nanotube, a protein, etc.), that interact with a system ...
