The legacy CIS(D) algorithm in Q-Chem is handled by the CCMAN/CCMAN2 modules of Q-Chem’s and shares many of the $rem options. RI-CIS(D), SOS-CIS(D), and SOS-CIS(D) do not depend on the coupled-cluster routines. Users who will not use this legacy CIS(D) method may skip to Section 7.7.6.
As with all post-HF calculations, it is important to ensure there are sufficient resources available for the necessary integral calculations and transformations. For CIS(D), these resources are controlled using the $rem variables CC_MEMORY, MEM_STATIC and MEM_TOTAL (see Section 6.8.7).
To request a CIS(D) calculation the METHOD $rem should be set to CIS(D) and the number of excited states to calculate should be specified by EE_STATES (or EE_SINGLETS and EE_TRIPLETS when appropriate). Alternatively, CIS(D) will be performed when EXCHANGE = HF, CORRELATION = CI and EOM_CORR = CIS(D). The SF-CIS(D) is invoked by using SF_STATES.
Note: It is a symmetry of a transition rather than that of a target state that is specified in excited state calculations. The symmetry of the target state is a product of the symmetry of the reference state and the transition. For closed-shell molecules, the former is fully symmetric and the symmetry of the target state is the same as that of transition, however, for open-shell references this is not so.
Note: Since there are no analytic gradients for CIS(D), the symmetry should be turned off for geometry optimization and frequency calculations, and CC_STATE_TO_OPT should be specified assuming symmetry, i.e., as [1,N] where N is the number of state to optimize (the states are numbered from 1).
