Cannot reproduce excitation energies in Orca

There are lots of reasons that calculated excited state energies won't match experimental values. Have a look at a good textbook on TD-DFT for why, but in general calculated energies will be higher in ...

How to get the HOMO/LUMO from spin up/down eigenvalues?

If you want to have eigenvalues for each spin, you need to run a spin polarized calculations. This will set the program to treat both spins differently. After that, you could obtain different values ...

Analytical derivative of nuclear-electron attraction integrals over gaussian functions

The direct computation of the derivative of the nuclear-electron attraction operator can be simply avoided. Remember that in the McMurchie-Davidson algorithm, the Coulomb integral is reduced to a form,...

Geometry of H2O in the v=1 vibrational state for AIMD simulation

"Geometry" is complicated in quantum mechanics, because we have probability distributions rather than precise geometrical positions as we would have in classical mechanics. If we make the ...
