× If you have problems during the execution of MRCC, please attach the output with an adequate description of your case as well as the followings:
  • the way mrcc was invoked
  • the way build.mrcc was invoked
  • the output of build.mrcc
  • compiler version (for example: ifort -V, gfortran -v)
  • blas/lapack versions

Higher-order coupled cluster calculations

5 years 5 months ago #629 by bakowies
Dear Mihaly,
dear staff,

checking some higher order coupled cluster calculations, which I
had done some time ago with older versions of MRCC, I noted
seemingly strange behavior:

The CCSDT(Q) is larger in absolute terms than the CCSDT[Q] energy,
and both differ from CCSDT. The same is seen for CCSDTQP(6) and
CCSDTQP[6] relative to CCSDTQP and this is what I do expect.

CCSDTQ(P) and CCSDTQ[P] energies, on the other hand, are the
same to machine precision, and both somewhat larger in absolute
terms than CCSDTQ.

I observed the described behavior for a range of very small

Now I reran calculations for CH4 (cc-pVDZ) using a recent
version of MRCC (2017, statically linked) and reproduced this
behavior. See attached file.

Is there any reason to expect E(CCSDTQ(P)) = E(CCSDTQ[P])? After
all CH4 has 8 valence electrons to correlate and so we still have
some way to go to FCI.

Thanks a lot,
best regards,

Dear Dirk,
Please note that CCSDTQ(P) and CCSDTQ[P] are identical by definition, see the discussion before Eq. 35 in JCP 123, 214105 (2005).

Best regards,
Mihaly Kallay
