How does one project out the translations and rotations from a hessian?

I've recently written a simple code to numerically compute the hessian of some function (at a point). Most electronic structure packages will compute the hessian and then project out the translations ...

Excited states using ORMAS flag in GAMESS

I am trying to calculate the excited states using single reference CISD on $\ce{CH3OH},$ using ORMAS' CI-X option in GAMESS. As a test example I am using the $\ce{CH3OH}$ that has 2 core, 7 occ. ...

What are some examples where TD-DFT was successful and where it fell short in describing photophysical or photochemical processes?

Time-dependent Density Functional Theory has been around for quite a while now, seeing Density-Functional Theory for Time-Dependent Systems, and so it has been developed extensively, implemented in ...

Calculating excited states using GAMESS CISD module

I am trying to compare the energies of the excited states of $\ce{C12H9N}$ molecule using the CIS and CISD module implemented in the quantum chemistry package in GAMESS. While I can easily obtain the ...
