Hello there,

Defining a sub-symmetry for computing excitation energies seems to be broken for LC-DFT. In the example below, if I change the functional definition from PBE to LC-PBE, by changing
XC xpbe96 cpbe96
->
xc xcampbe96 1.0 cpbe96 1.0 HFexch 1.0
cam 0.30 cam_alpha 0.0 cam_beta 1.0

then NWchem computes excitation energies of all symmetries, instead of only b2. Any idea why this would happen?

Example:
