Hi, I am trying to run "aug-cc-pVDZ-DK Diffuse". However when I ran it an error come up:


atomscf:atomd: error in atom scf        0

For further details see manual section: 
No section for this category

Can someone help me with it because I do not know what is wrong.

My input file is:

start MgMOF-74
title "MgMOF-74"

memory 5000 mb
geometry
C 8.64517792 17.24987852 15.31748901

Mg 7.88418289 20.67609980 14.51097681
end
basis
  • library "aug-cc-pVDZ-DK Diffuse"
end
charge 2

singlet
end
task scf

"aug-cc-pVDZ-DK Diffuse" is not a full basis set, but just a set of diffuse basis functions.
You might want to try the following

basis
* library aug-cc-pVDZ-DK
* library "aug-cc-pVDZ-DK Diffuse"
end

Thank you. Now it is working. Can I ask one more question? Is there any reason that aug-cc-pVDZ doesn't work with DFT calculation but work with HF and MP2?

I am not able to reproduce any DFT failure with the geometry you reported and the aug-cc-pVDZ basis set.
Could you post the input and output files your got?

Is there a reason you used "nosegment"? When I remove that option the job terminates normally.

Thanks again! I was using "nosegment" to increase the speed of energy calculation.

the nosegment option was removed in NWChem 6.5
