Greetings!

When the keywords are printed out, you can see that I've requested for a maximum of 999 cc iterations:

But it stopped after 50, even though it wasn't converged !!

I've been getting these huge residuals whenever I work with a big basis set.

For ccsdt(q) my strategy is to start by using the hand-coded ccsd program rather than the automated mrcc program (then use rest=1 with fort.17 to get ccsdt(q) from a good initial guess).

However I'm getting huge norms for ccsd as well, so my thought was to use an MP2 guess for ccsd, but I think that's already the default:

But I don't see MP2 printed anywhere. Is it possible to get it printed when it's used as an initial guess for ccsd?

So in summary:

1) MRCC seems to be ignoring my ccmaxit keyword

2) Therefore I want to try to converge ccsd in fewer iterations, is it already using the best possible initial guess (for example MP2, even though it is not printed)?

3) If it's already using the best initial guess, is it possible to play around with the DIIS parameters / damping / level shifts / etc. for getting better ccsd convergence?

4) I note that CFOUR successfully converged CCSDT for this basis set, but cannot do CCSDT(Q) for open-shell systems, so is it possible for MRCC to read in CCSDT amplitudes calculated from CFOUR? I guess the CFOUR amplitdues would have to be converted into fort.17 format somehow.

With best wishes !!!

Greetings,

I will find it very difficult to justify publishing this paper without doing CCSDT(Q) because it only requires 361GB of RAM and we have at least 48 machines with 0.5TB, 24 machines with 1.5TB and ~10 machines with 3TB of RAM. Furthermore the difference between CCSDT and CCSDT(Q) in all the smaller basis sets is far bigger than our spectroscopic requirements, but the difference between CCSDT(Q) and FCI is two orders of magnitude smaller, and well within the estimated basis set error.

However CFOUR cannot do CCSDT(Q) for triplet states, and MRCC cannot seem to do even CCSD for this system of only 6 electrons.

CCSDT(Q) with rest=2 starts with CCSD, but it doesn't converge, and my keyword ccmaxit=999 was ignored (!) so only 50 iterations are done before the parenthesis T correction:

Then I tried with the hand-coded CCSD program instead of the automated general MRCC program, but the norms were no smaller (in fact they were usually a bit bigger):

Norm of residual vector: 2717.12319571

Therefore I wonder how I might be able to get CCSDT(Q) for this system.

For example:

1) getting more than 50 iterations in the CC?

2) starting with an MP2 initial guess (or is that already the case?) ?

3) Play around with the DIIS parameters, damping, level shifts, etc. ?

4) CCSDT converged easily in CFOUR and CCSD(T) worked in CFOUR and MOLRPO, can MRCC read the cluster amplitudes somehow, if I gt those in fort.17 format?

5) Can we project the cluster amplitudes from a converged calculation in a smaller basis, into the bigger basis, which is what we do at HF level when we use scfiguess=restart and the file SCFDENSITIES?

Any advice would be highly appreciated.

I will find it very difficult to justify publishing this paper without doing CCSDT(Q) because it only requires 361GB of RAM and we have at least 48 machines with 0.5TB, 24 machines with 1.5TB and ~10 machines with 3TB of RAM. Furthermore the difference between CCSDT and CCSDT(Q) in all the smaller basis sets is far bigger than our spectroscopic requirements, but the difference between CCSDT(Q) and FCI is two orders of magnitude smaller, and well within the estimated basis set error.

However CFOUR cannot do CCSDT(Q) for triplet states, and MRCC cannot seem to do even CCSD for this system of only 6 electrons.

CCSDT(Q) with rest=2 starts with CCSD, but it doesn't converge, and my keyword ccmaxit=999 was ignored (!) so only 50 iterations are done before the parenthesis T correction:

Then I tried with the hand-coded CCSD program instead of the automated general MRCC program, but the norms were no smaller (in fact they were usually a bit bigger):

Norm of residual vector: 103.47784701

Norm of residual vector: 2716.46077697

Norm of residual vector: 2717.12319571

Therefore I wonder how I might be able to get CCSDT(Q) for this system.

For example:

1) getting more than 50 iterations in the CC?

2) starting with an MP2 initial guess (or is that already the case?) ?

3) Play around with the DIIS parameters, damping, level shifts, etc. ?

4) CCSDT converged easily in CFOUR and CCSD(T) worked in CFOUR and MOLRPO, can MRCC read the cluster amplitudes somehow, if I gt those in fort.17 format?

5) Can we project the cluster amplitudes from a converged calculation in a smaller basis, into the bigger basis, which is what we do at HF level when we use scfiguess=restart and the file SCFDENSITIES?

Any advice would be highly appreciated.

Dear Nike,

1) The huge residual norms clearly indicate that something is wrong with the MO integrals you get from Cfour. You should check your Cfour input and output file if everything is correct. You should also try to run this calculation with the same settings but smaller basis sets.

Preferably, you should run this calculation with mrcc in standalone mode. I have run a couple of calculations with smaller basis sets and have not experience any problem.

You can change the max. number of iterations by changing the maxit variable in the MRCCCOMMON file and recompiling the code, but it will not help.

2) This is the case.

3) It is not possible but would not help.

4) It is not possible.

5) It is not possible

Dear Mihaly,

Thank you VERY much for the reply.

- All integrals were done in MRCC.

- iface=cfour was just to trick MRCC into reading it's own fort.55.

- I have indeed converged CCSDTQ in aCV5Z with standalone MRCC, but CCSD in aCV6Z gives a huge norm.

- I have experienced huge residual norms with all other cases where I used a bit basis set in standalone MRCC (also for other molecules).

- Considering that CFOUR converges CCSDT for this aCV6Z basis set, and CFOUR and MRCC both have the same default itol=13, I suspect there is a bug in MRCC.

However I'll try it again in standalone MRCC with itol=18 and more a strict convergence criterion for the ROHF and let you know if it helps.

Since you say "You should check your Cfour input and output file if everything is correct," I have pasted below, the MRCC input file that was used to generate the fort.55.

basis=aCV6Z-KOPUT

uncontract=off

calc=CCSDT(Q)

mem=490GB

core=corr

cctol=7

ccmaxit=999

scfmaxit=9999

scftype=ROHF

scfiguess=ao

rohftype=semicanonical

mult=3

rest=2

geom

Li

Li 1 R

R=4.1700

unit=angstroms

I have some short questions about the other points:

2) Since MP2 is used for the initial guess, is there a way to print it, so I can compare it with other codes?

3) Ok.

4) Ok.

5) Is reading in cluster amplitudes from a smaller basis set, and projecting them to a bigger basis set, something that's impossible mathematically, or is it just not implemented? I note that (3) and (4) are of course possible in theory, but just not implemented in MRCC. I wonder if the same is true for (5) or if there is *really* no method (derived yet) for doing the projection.

With best wishes!

Dear Nike,

Did the SCF converge for your aCV6Z calculation? Could you post the entire output file for the aCV6Z calculation?

2) The MP2 energy is printed out for canonical HF references (RHF/UHF) but not calculated for ROHF.

5) It is possible but not implemented.

Dear Mihaly,

Thanks very much for the reply!

I guess the reason why the CCSD is starting with a huge residual norm is because MP2 isn't calculated for ROHF so the initial guess is not so good.

The ROHF converged:

But this was with the default scftol and itol.

I have attached various output files.

out.1462030 is where the ROHF converged, but CC didn't start, probably due to lack of RAM

out.1482423 used the fort.55 from the previous run and 50 iterations of CCSD was not enough to converge. I increased the RAM from 490GB to 768GB here, which I was nervous about because sometimes this causes "The number of active orbitals has been changed! It is dangerous to restart the program!" but I searched the word "dangerous" in this output file and didn't find anything.

out.1482662 used the hand-written ccsd, and never restarted from a fort.55, so never a change in available RAM or "number of active orbitals", but also gave huge residuals.

I also repeated out.1482662 but with more RAM, but perhaps it's not so valuable to attach that output file because the results are the same, just without using the out-of-core algorithm to read from disk all the time.

I've now run a job with itol=18 and scftol=13 and and the SCF converged, but ovirt has still been on the second part of the alpha-alpha step for quite a while. If this doesn't work, perhaps I have to try with the CFOUR interface, but I have to wait until this job finishes since all the large RAM nodes are running other jobs at the moment.

With best wishes!!
