Accurate dipole moment

Post by agilemolecule » 27 Sep 2018, 05:45


I would like to calculate dipole moments more accurately than with MP2.
And calculate the electrostatic potential on the grid.
Could you advise me how to do this?

The next natural step is to use coupled cluster (see sections 21.2, 31.3, and 31.2 in the Dalton manual).

Regarding the calculation of the electrostatic potential on a grid. As far as I know this cannot be done in Dalton and in LSDalton it is limited to HF/DFT and MP2.
