Single-Point Energy — energy()

psi4.energy(name[, molecule, return_wfn, restart_file])[source]

Function to compute the single-point electronic energy.

Returns:float – Total electronic energy in Hartrees. SAPT & EFP return interaction energy.
Returns:(float, Wavefunction) – energy and wavefunction when return_wfn specified.
PSI variables:
Parameters:
  • name (string) –

    'scf' || 'mp2' || 'ci5' || etc.

    First argument, usually unlabeled. Indicates the computational method to be applied to the system.

  • molecule (molecule) –

    h2o || etc.

    The target molecule, if not the last molecule defined.

  • return_wfn (boolean) –

    'on' || \(\Rightarrow\) 'off' \(\Leftarrow\)

    Indicate to additionally return the Wavefunction calculation result as the second element (after float energy) of a tuple.

  • restart_file (string) –

    ['file.1, file.32] || ./file || etc.

    Binary data files to be renamed for calculation restart.
