Possible to restart CCSD or CCSDT TCE calculations?

Hi all,

I'm working with a reaction (35 atoms total), which is only marginally within the limits of the hardware I presently have available.

From the documentation I've read, TCE can do ROHF-CCSD in parallel but not CCSD[T]. If there's a way to do ROHF-CCSD[T] in parallel please disabuse me of the misunderstanding and enlighten me as to how.

What I'd like to do (given the above assessment) if possible, is to run the ROHF-CCSD in parallel and restart on a single core to finish the CCSD[T].

Can it be done? How? Would using TCE_CUDA (haven't compiled it yet but could) bear on this at all either way?

In general, I'd also like to know if it's possible to restart CCSD calculations (gamess can from the F70 scratch file it produces)

Thanks in advance!

I use the following input and three cores to do the ROHF calculation of doublet CH free radical with NWCHEM 6.8

echo

start molecule

charge 0
memory ...

geometry units angstroms print xyz
symmetry c1
  C       ...
H ...
end

basis
  • library aug-cc-pvdz
end

SCF
   doublet
ROHF
END

TCE
SCF
CCSD[T]
io ga
END

and find it can be finished without any problem

I have also successfully finished ROHF CCSDT for it parallelly.
The initial geometry might need to be reoptimized.

Thus, there is no problem to run this parallelly with NWCHEM 6.8.

The two results can be called identical.
