- CFOUR_ABCDTYPE (CFOUR)¶
CFOUR — Specifies the way the \(\langle ab||cd \rangle\) molecular orbital integrals are handled in post-MP2 calculations. STANDARD (= 0) uses directly the corresponding MO integrals and thus results in an algorithm which in particular for large-scale calculations results in excessive use of disk space (storage of all \(\langle ab||cd\rangle\) integrals. AOBASIS (=2) uses an AO-based algorithm to evaluate all terms involving the \(\langle ab||cd\rangle\) integrals and significantly reduces the amount of disk storage. The use of ABCDTYPE=AOBASIS is strongly recommended for all CC calculations up to CCSD(T) and has been implemented for energy, gradient, second-derivative, and excitation energy calculations.

**Type**: string**Possible Values**: STANDARD, AOBASIS**Default**: STANDARD

- CFOUR_ACTIVE_ORBI (CFOUR)¶

The active orbitals are specified by either NIRREP or 2*NIRREP integers specifying the number of active orbitals of each symmetry type, where NIRREP is the number of irreducible representations in the computational point group. If there are no orbitals of a particular symmetry type a zero must be entered. For more information and an example see CFOUR_OCCUPATION .

**Type**: array**Default**: No Default

- CFOUR_ANH_ALGORITHM (CFOUR)¶
CFOUR — Specifies which algorithm is used for CFOUR_ANHARMONIC =VIBROT, VPT2, and FULLQUARTIC calculations. If STANDARD (=0) is chosen, then simply invoking

`xcfour`

will cause a complete job to be run with all second-derivative calculations being done in series. If PARALLEL (=1), then the job stops after the second-derivative calculation at the reference geometry and generates out all input geometries for the remaining calculation. These can be then processed in “parallel” (currently not recommended). Note that it is recommended to carry out all calculations with PARALLEL, even when the actual calculation is carried out in a sequential mode.**Type**: string**Possible Values**: STANDARD, PARALLEL**Default**: STANDARD

- CFOUR_ANH_DERIVATIVES (CFOUR)¶
CFOUR — Specifies whether the anharmonic force field is calculated using analytic gradients (=FIRST) or analytic Hessians (=SECOND).

**Type**: string**Possible Values**: FIRST, SECOND**Default**: SECOND

- CFOUR_ANH_STEPSIZE (CFOUR)¶

**Type**: integer**Default**: 50000

- CFOUR_ANH_SYMMETRY (CFOUR)¶
CFOUR — Specifies whether non-abelian symmetry is to be exploited in determining displacements for CFOUR_ANHARMONIC =VIBROT or VPT2 calculations. If set to NONABELIAN (=0), maximum advantage will be taken of symmetry and the full set of cubic force constants will be generated from a skeleton set by application of the totally symmetric projection operator. If set to ABELIAN (=1), only the operations of the abelian subgroup will be exploited. Note: It is important to point out that the symmetrization currently works only for cubic constants. Therefore, if you require quartic force constants (for frequency calculations), you

*must*use the ABELIAN option. Moreover, the latter work for only asymmetric tops and linear molecules.**Type**: string**Possible Values**: ABELIAN, NONABELIAN**Default**: ABELIAN

- CFOUR_ANHARMONIC (CFOUR)¶
CFOUR — Specifies treatment of anharmonic effects by calculating cubic and/or quartic force fields. VIBROT (=3) requests calculation of only those cubic constants of the form \(\phi_{nij}\), where n is a totally symmetric coordinate. These are sufficient to determine the vibration-rotation interaction constants needed to calculate vibrational corrections to rotational constants, but are

*not*sufficient to generate the corresponding cubic constants of isotopologs that have a lower point-group symmetry (*i.e.*HOD isotopolog of water). VPT2 (=1, note that the old value CUBIC can be still used and is equivalent to VPT2) generates all cubic constants and all quartic constants apart from those of the form \(\phi_{ijkl}\), which is enough for: 1) generation of cubic constants of isotopologs (see manual entries associated with anharmonic calculations for an example); 2) calculation of vibrational energy levels with VPT2. This keyword also directs the program to analyze resonances and calculate intensities of one- and two-quantum transitions. FULLQUARTIC (=2) (not part of the public release) is largely self-explanatory; it directs the program to calculate all quartic constants. This is sufficient (but this has not been implemented) to generate the full quartic force field of all isotopologs.**Type**: string**Possible Values**: CUBIC, VPT2, FULLQUARTIC, VIBROT, OFF**Default**: OFF

- CFOUR_AO_LADDERS (CFOUR)¶
CFOUR — Can be used to control the algorithm used by CFOUR when terms involving \(\langle ab||cd\rangle\) molecular orbital integrals are calculated in the atomic orbital basis (see CFOUR_ABCDTYPE). MULTIPASS (= 0) uses an approach where the AO integral file is read a number of times in order to ensure maximal vectorization and is usually the optimal strategy on supercomputers; SINGLEPASS (= 1) determines the contributions with only a single pass through the AO integrals, but at the cost of significantly reduced vectorization. In general, however, SINGLEPASS is definitely preferable on workstations with RISC architectures. (Default : MULTIPASS on all 64-bit machines (e.g., CRAY-YMP) ; SINGLEPASS on all 32-bit machines (e.g., IBM-RS6000, HP-735, SGI-Indigo, DEC alphastations)). SPARSE_AO (=2) uses a sparse matrix algorithm which first rearranges the integral matrix in order to get “well-occupied” and “very sparse” blocks. “Well-occupied” blocks will be multiplied by matrix multiplication while in “very sparse” blocks only the non-zero elements are considered. The computational time is further reduced using symmetrized and anti-symmetrized integral and amplitude matrices in the multiplication. Substantial saving is assumed if SPARSE_AO (=2) is used.

**Type**: string**Possible Values**: MULTIPASS, SINGLEPASS**Default**: SINGLEPASS

**Psi4 Interface:**Recommended to use instead BASIS for larger basis set selection and greater flexibility. When BASIS used, CFOUR_SPHERICAL is set appropriately.**Type**: string**Default**: SPECIAL

In general, DIIS provides the best results and is recommended, while OFF often results in poor convergence and thus cannot be recommended.

- CFOUR_CC_PROGRAM (CFOUR)¶
CFOUR — Specifies which CC program is used. The available options are VCC (=0), ECC (=1), MRCC (=2), and EXTERNAL (=3). The default for all calculations is currently VCC which requests usage of

`xvcc`

, but in many cases (e.g., for CCSD and CCSD(T)) ECC should be preferred due to the better performance of`xecc`

(available currently for CCSD, CCSD+T, CCSD(T), and closed-shell CCSDT-n, CC3, and CCSDT). MRCC and External are intended for CC programs outside the CFOUR suite, e.g., the general CC module mrcc written by M. Kallay (Budapest, Hungary). Default: VCC Note: Using the option ECC is not recommended for ROHF gradients. That is, if you are doing a geometry optimization with ROHF as your reference wave function then it is safe to use the option VCC.**Psi4 Interface:**Keyword set according to best practice for the computational method CFOUR_CALC_LEVEL, reference CFOUR_REFERENCE (NYI) and derivative level CFOUR_DERIV_LEVEL according to Table Best Practices when method specified by argument to computation command (*e.g.*, when`energy('c4-ccsd')`

**Type**: string**Possible Values**: NONE, VIRTUAL, DVIRTUAL, OCCUPIED, DOCCUPIED**Default**: NONE

- CFOUR_CONTRACTION (CFOUR)¶
CFOUR — Specifies the contraction scheme used by the integral and integral derivative program. SEGMENTED (=0) uses a segmented contraction scheme; GENERAL (=1) uses a general contraction scheme, and UNCONTRACTED (=2) uses the corresponding uncontracted sets. Note that even for truly segmented basis sets, the integral programs run significantly faster in the GENERAL mode.

- CFOUR_CONVERGENCE (CFOUR)¶
CFOUR — Identical to CFOUR_GEO_CONV.

**Type**: integer**Default**: 4

- CFOUR_COORDINATES (CFOUR)¶
CFOUR — Specifies the type of coordinates used in the input file ZMAT. Value INTERNAL (=0) means that the geometry is supplied in the usual Z-matrix format, while CARTESIAN (=1) means that the geometry is given in Cartesian coordinates. A third option is XYZINT (=2) for which a Z-matrix connectivity is defined, but with values of the internal coordinates defined implicitly by supplying Cartesian coordinates. Note that geometry optimizations are currently only possible for INTERNAL and XYZ2INT.

**Psi4 Interface:**Keyword set from active molecule, always CARTESIAN. Above restrictions on geometry optimizations no longer apply.**Type**: string**Possible Values**: INTERNAL, CARTESIAN, XYZINT**Default**: INTERNAL

- CFOUR_CORE_ORBITALS (CFOUR)¶
CFOUR — Specifies the core orbitals used in a TCSCF calculation and has to be used in combination with the keyword CFOUR_ACTIVE_ORBI. The core orbitals are specified by either NIRREP or 2*NIRREP integers specifying the number of core orbitals of each symmetry type, where NIRREP is the number of irreducible representations in the computational point group. If there are no orbitals of a particular symmetry type a zero must be entered. For more information and an example see CFOUR_OCCUPATION.

**Type**: array**Default**: No Default

**Type**: boolean**Default**: true

CFOUR — Specifies whether or not energy derivatives are to be calculated and if so whether first or second derivatives are computed. ZERO (= 0) derivatives are not calculated, FIRST (=1) first derivatives are calculated, SECOND (=2) second derivatives are calculated. Note that this keyword usually needs not be set in any calculation since it is automatically set if the appropriate other options in the CFOUR namelist are turned on.

**Psi4 Interface:**Keyword set from type of computation command: ZERO if`energy()`

, FIRST if`gradient()`

or`optimization()`

,*etc.***Type**: string**Possible Values**: ZERO, FIRST, SECOND**Default**: ZERO

**Type**: string**Possible Values**: RELAXED, UNRELAXED**Default**: RELAXED

- CFOUR_DROPMO (CFOUR)¶
CFOUR — Specifies which molecular orbitals will be dropped from the post-SCF calculation. The orbitals are numbered in ascending order from the most stable (negative energy) to the most unstable (largest positive energy). Individual orbitals must be separated with a dash, while x>y means orbitals x through y inclusive. For example, the string

`1>10-55-58>64`

, would result in orbitals 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10,55,58,59,60,61,62,63 and 64 being dropped. For UHF calculations, the appropriate orbitals are deleted for both spin cases. No dropped virtual MOs are currently allowed for gradient or property calculations.**Psi4 Interface:**The array above is specified in PSI as (white space tolerant) [1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10,55,58,59,60,61,62,63,64].**Type**: array**Default**: No Default

- CFOUR_ECP (CFOUR)¶
CFOUR — Specifies whether effective core potentials (pseudopotentials) are used (ON, =1) or not (OFF, =0).

**Type**: boolean**Default**: false

- CFOUR_EIGENVECTOR (CFOUR)¶
CFOUR — Specifies which eigenvector of the totally symmetric part of the block-factored Hessian is to be followed uphill in a transition state search. Eigenvectors are indexed by their eigenvalues – the lowest eigenvalue is 1, the next lowest is 2, etc. The default is 1, which should always be used if you are not looking for a specific transition state which you know corresponds to motion along a different mode. In the future, relatively sophisticated generation of a guessed eigenvector will be implemented, but this is the way things are for now. Of course, this keyword has no meaning if CFOUR_METHOD is not set to TS.

**Type**: integer**Default**: 1

- CFOUR_EL_ANHARM (CFOUR)¶
CFOUR — Experimental use, ON = 1 requests the evaluation of electrical anharmonicities

**Type**: boolean**Default**: false

- CFOUR_EOM_NONIT (CFOUR)¶
CFOUR — Controls whether non-iterative triples corrections are applied after various types of EOM-CCSD calculation. Works with CFOUR_EXCITE set to EOMIP, might work with EOMEE, certainly doesn’t work with EOMEA. Use with great caution, preferably after having a few drinks.

**Type**: boolean**Default**: false

- CFOUR_ESTATE_CONV (CFOUR)¶

CFOUR — The maximum number of expansion vectors used in the solution of EOMCC equations (Default: 20, hard-coded to 4 in triples calculations)

**Type**: integer**Default**: 20

- CFOUR_ESTATE_PROP (CFOUR)¶
CFOUR — This keyword applies only to EOM-CC calculations and specifies whether any excited or ionized state one-electron properties are to be calculated. Proper use of this keyword requires a relatively advanced knowledge of quantum chemistry and the available options are discussed here. The options are: OFF (=0) [no properties or transition moments are calculated]; EXPECTATION (=1) [transition moments and dipole strengths are calculated along with selected one-electron properties which are evaluated as expectation values]; UNRELAXED (=2) [selected one-electron properties are calculated in an approximation that neglects relaxation of molecular orbitals]; RESPONSE (=3) [selected one-electron properties are calculated as analytic first derivatives of the energy]. Except for EOMCC calculations on two-electron systems (which are exact), properties obtained by the three approaches will not be equivalent. The default value for this keyword is slightly complicated. For TDA calculations, the default is EXPECTATION since the evaluation of transition moments involves only a negligible amount of additional computation relative to the evaluation of the excitation energies. For EOMCC, the default is OFF since evaluation of any transition moments or properties requires approximately twice the computational time. Transition moments and dipole strengths are evaluated by default for all values of ESTATE_PROP other than OFF.

**Type**: string**Possible Values**: OFF, EXPECTATION, UNRELAXED, RESPONSE**Default**: No Default

- CFOUR_ESTATE_SYM (CFOUR)¶
CFOUR — Specifies the number of excited states which are to be determined in each irreducible representation of the computational subgroup. The program attempts to find all of the lowest roots, but this is not guaranteed because the eigenvalue problem is not solved by direct matrix diagonalization, but rather by an iterative (modified Davidson) algorithm. For excited state gradient calculations, only one root (clearly) is used. In such a case, one and only one non-zero entry in the string can be used, and this value is usually set to one (

*i.e.*0/1/0/0). (However sometimes one wants to calculate the gradient for, say, the second root of a given symmetry, and in such a case, one could use 0/2/0/0. What happens is that both roots are calculated, but only the second one is used in the subsequent density matrix and gradient calculation.) The format used for this keyword is identical to that used in CFOUR_OCCUPATION. For example, for a computational subgroup having four symmetry species, the string 3/1/0/2 specifies that 6 total roots should be searched for, three in the first block, one in the second block, and two in the fourth block. It is also important to note that the`%excite*`

input, if present, takes precedence over this keyword. Default: All zeros.**Psi4 Interface:**The array above is specified in PSI as (white space tolerant) [3,1,0,2].**Type**: array**Default**: No Default

- CFOUR_ESTATE_TRANS (CFOUR)¶
CFOUR — Specifies whether just the excitation energies (OFF, =0) or in addition transition moments (EXPECTATION, =1) are calculated. Note that this keyword should not be used in excited-state calculations involving analytic gradients and that transition moments are essentially only available for EOM-CCSD/CCSD-LR.

**Type**: string**Possible Values**: OFF, EXPECTATION**Default**: OFF

- CFOUR_EVAL_HESS (CFOUR)¶
CFOUR — Tells the program, in the course of a geometry optimization, to calculate the Hessian explicitly every N cycles. 0 means never calculated explicitly.

**Psi4 Interface:**Geometry optimizations run through PSI (except in sandwich mode) use PSI’s optimizer and so this keyword has no effect. Use optking keywords instead, particularly FULL_HESS_EVERY.**Type**: integer**Default**: 0

- CFOUR_EXCITATION (CFOUR)¶

The value must be specified as an integer and the FC strength used by the program will be the value of the keyword \(\times 10^{-6}\). The atom for which the FC perturbation is switched on is specified in the ZMAT file after the CFOUR command line and potential basis set input, as follows %spin density N with N as the number of atom (in (X5,I3) format) in the order they are written by JODA to the MOL file. Be aware that for some atoms, the calculation has to be run in lower symmetry or even without symmetry. (Default : 0)

**Type**: integer**Default**: 0

- CFOUR_FD_CALCTYPE (CFOUR)¶
CFOUR — Specifies the algorithm used to compute the harmonic force constants in finite-difference calculations.GRADONLY (=0) evaluates the force constants and dipole moment derivatives by numerical differentiation of analytic gradients; ENERONLY (=1) evaluates the force constants by second differences of energies (dipole moment derivatives are not evaluated); while MIXED (=2) evaluates 1x1 blocks of symmetry-blocked force constants by second differences pf energies and all other elements by first differences of gradients. the GRADONLY and MIXED approaches may, of course, only be used hwen using computational methods for which analytic gradients are available.

**Type**: string**Possible Values**: GRADONLY, ENERONLY, MIXED**Default**: GRADONLY

- CFOUR_FD_IRREPS (CFOUR)¶
CFOUR — Requests that only vibrational frequencies of certain symmetry types are evaluated in a VIBRATION=FINDIF calculation. The numbers of the irreducible representations for which vibrational analysis is to be performed are separated by slashes. For example, FD_IRREP=1/3/4 means compute the frequencies of modes transforming as the first, third, and fourth irreducible representations. If a symmetry is specified for which there are no vibrational modes, the program will terminate. The labels of the irreducible representations for this keyword are not usually the same as those used in the rest of the calculation. Moreover, for some point groups, for example, those of linear molecules, the two sets of labels refer to different subgroups. There is as yet no straightforward way to determine what they will be without starting a calculation. If one runs the

`xjoda`

and then the`xsymcor`

executables, the relevant irreducible representations will be listed. If all vibrational frequencies are desired, this keyword need not be included. Default : compute vibrational frequencies for all irreducible representations**Type**: array**Default**: No Default

- CFOUR_FD_PROJECT (CFOUR)¶
CFOUR — Specifies whether or not rotational degrees of freedoms are projected out from the symmetry-adapted coordinates in a finite difference calculations.

At a stationary point on the potential energy surface, both options will give equivalent harmonic force fields, but OFF should be used at non-stationary points.

**Type**: string**Possible Values**: ON, OFF**Default**: ON

- CFOUR_FD_STEPSIZE (CFOUR)¶

, and`DERGAM`

are split, respectively.**Type**: string**Default**: 0/0/0/0/0

- CFOUR_FINITE_PERTURBATION (CFOUR)¶
CFOUR — Specifies the field strength for a perturbation (defined within a

- CFOUR_FOCK (CFOUR)¶
CFOUR — This option is used to control the algorithm used for construction of the Fock matrix in SCF calculations. PK (=0) uses the PK-supermatrix approach while AO (=1) constructs the matrix directly from the basis function integrals. In general, PK is somewhat faster, but results in considerable use of disk space when out-of-core algorithms are required. (Default: FOCK).

**Type**: boolean**Default**: false

- CFOUR_FROZEN_VIRT (CFOUR)¶
CFOUR — Specifies whether in the correlation treatment all virtual orbitals (OFF =0) or only a subset of virtual orbitals (ON =1) are used. In the latter case, the threshold for deleting virtual orbitals based on the orbital energy needs to be specified in a

section.**Type**: boolean**Default**: false

- CFOUR_GAMMA_ABCD (CFOUR)¶
CFOUR — Used to control the handling and storage of two-particle density matrix elements with four virtual indices \(\Gamma(abcd)\). DISK (=0) directs the program to calculate and store all elements of \(\Gamma(abcd)\), while DIRECT (=1) tells the program to use alternative algorithms in which \(\Gamma(abcd)\) is calculated and used “on the fly”. Note that this option might be not available for all type of calculations.

**Type**: string**Possible Values**: DISK, DIRECT**Default**: DISK

- CFOUR_GENBAS_1 (CFOUR)¶
CFOUR — This keyword applies only to Hydrogen and Helium atoms and specifies the number of contracted Gaussian functions per shell. There is usually no need to use this keyword, but it can be useful for using a subset of the functions in a particular entry in the

`GENBAS`

file, particularly for generally contracted WMR basis sets. For example, if entry H:BASIS in the`GENBAS`

file contains 7 contracted s functions, 4 p functions and a single d function, then setting GENBAS_1=730 would eliminate the last p function and the d function. Default: use the unaltered`GENBAS`

entry.**Type**: string**Default**: No Default

CFOUR — Specifies the convergence criterion for geometry optimization. The optimization terminates when the RMS gradient is below \(10^{-N}\) Hartree/bohr, where \(N\) is the specified value.

**Psi4 Interface:**Geometry optimizations run through PSI (except in sandwich mode) use PSI’s optimizer and so this keyword has no effect. Use optking keywords instead, particularly G_CONVERGENCE =CFOUR, which should be equivalent except for different internal coordinate definitions.**Type**: integer**Default**: 5

- CFOUR_GEO_MAXCYC (CFOUR)¶

- CFOUR_GEO_MAXSTEP (CFOUR)¶
CFOUR — Specifies largest step (in millibohr) which is allowed in geometry optimizations.

A third option, FOLLOW (=2) performs the stability analysis and then proceeds to rotate the SCF orbitals in the direction of a particular negative eigenvalue of the orbital rotation Hessian (see the explanation of keyword CFOUR_ROT_EVEC), after which the SCF is rerun.

- CFOUR_JODA_PRINT (CFOUR)¶
CFOUR — Controls amount of debug printing performed by

`xjoda`

. The higher the number, the more information is printed. Values of 25 or higher generally do not produce anything of interest to the general user. Do not set JODA_PRINT to 999 as this will cause the core vector to be dumped to disk.**Type**: integer**Default**: 0

- CFOUR_NEGEVAL (CFOUR)¶
CFOUR — Specifies what to do if negative eigenvalues are encountered in the totally symmetric Hessian during an NR or MANR geometry-optimization search. If ABORT (=0), the job will terminate with an error message; if SWITCH (=1) the program will just switch the eigenvalue to its absolute value and keep plugging away (this is strongly discouraged!); and if RFA (=2), the keyword CFOUR_GEO_METHOD is switched to RFA internally and the optimization is continued.

**Psi4 Interface:**Geometry optimizations run through PSI (except in sandwich mode) use PSI’s optimizer and so this keyword has no effect. Use optking keywords instead.**Type**: string**Possible Values**: ABORT, SWITCH, RFA**Default**: ABORT

- CFOUR_NEWNORM (CFOUR)¶
CFOUR — All components of spherical AO’s are normalized to 1. This feature can help with numerical convergence issues if AO integrals are involved. Currently only working for single-point energy calculations.

**Type**: boolean**Default**: false

- CFOUR_NONHF (CFOUR)¶
CFOUR — Specifies whether the reference function used in the correlation energy calculation satisfies the (spin-orbital) HF equations or not. Usually there is no need to set this parameter (OFF = 0 and ON =1), since standard non-HF reference functions (QRHF and ROHF) set this flag automatically.

**Type**: boolean**Default**: false

- CFOUR_NTOP_TAMP (CFOUR)¶
CFOUR — Specifies how many t amplitudes will be printed for each spin case and excitation level. For =N, The largest N amplitudes for each spin case and excitation level will be printed.

**Type**: integer**Default**: 15

- CFOUR_OCCUPATION (CFOUR)¶
CFOUR — Specifies the orbital occupancy of the reference function in terms of the occupation numbers of the orbitals and their irreducible representations. The occupancy is specified by either NIRREP or 2*NIRREP integers specifying the number of occupied orbitals of each symmetry type, where NIRREP is the number of irreducible representations in the computational point group. If there are no orbitals of a particular symmetry type a zero must be entered. If the reference function is for an open-shell system, two strings of NIRREP occupation numbers separated by a slash are input for the \(\alpha\) and \(\beta\) sets of orbitals. An example of the use of the OCCUPATION keyword for the water molecule would be OCCUPATION=3-1-1-0. For the \(^2A_1\) water cation, an open-shell system, the keyword would be specified by OCCUPATION=3-1-1-0/2-1-1-0. It should be noted that the

`xvmol`

integral program orders the irreducible representations in a strange way, which most users do not perceive to be a logical order. Hence, it is usually advisable initially to run just a single point integral and HF-SCF calculation in order to determine the number and ordering of the irreducible representations. The occupation keyword may be omitted, in which case an initial orbital occupancy is determined by diagonalization of the core Hamiltonian. In many cases, HF-SCF calculations run with the core Hamiltonian guess will usually converge to the lowest energy HF-SCF solution, but this should not be blindly assumed. (Default: The occupation is given by the core Hamiltonian initial guess).**Psi4 Interface:**The arrays above are specified in PSI as (white space tolerant) [3,1,1,0] and [[3,1,1,0],[3,0,1,0]].**Type**: array**Default**: No Default

- CFOUR_OMP_NUM_THREADS (CFOUR)¶
CFOUR

**(Expert)**— Sets the OMP_NUM_THREADS environment variable before calling CFOUR. If the environment variable`OMP_NUM_THREADS`

is set prior to calling Psi4 then that value is used. When set, this option overrides everything. Be aware the`-n`

command-line option described in section Threading does not affect CFOUR.**Type**: integer**Default**: 1

- CFOUR_OPEN-SHELL (CFOUR)¶
CFOUR — Specifies which kind of open-shell CC treatment is employed. The default is a spin-orbital CC treatment (SPIN-ORBITAL =1) which is the only possible choice for UHF-CC schemes anyways. For ROHF-CC treatments, the possible options are beside the standard spin-orbital scheme a spin-restricted CC approach (SR-CC=3), as well as a corresponding linear approximation (which in the literature usually is referred to as partially-spin-adapted CC scheme) (PSA-CC=1). SR-CC and PSA-CC are within the CCSD approximation restricted to excitations defined by the first-order interacting space arguments. With the keywords PSA-CC_FULL (=2) or SR-CC_FULL (=6) inclusion of the so called “pseudo-triples” beyond the first-order interacting space is also possible. The two-determinant CC method for open-shell singlet states can be activated by TD-CC (=8).

**Type**: string**Possible Values**: SPIN-ORBITAL, SR-CC, PSA-CC_FULL, SR-CC_FULL, TD-CC**Default**: SPIN-ORBITAL

- CFOUR_OPT_MAXCYC (CFOUR)¶
CFOUR — Identical to CFOUR_GEO_MAXCYC.

**Type**: integer**Default**: 50

- CFOUR_ORBITALS (CFOUR)¶
CFOUR — Specifies the type of molecular orbitals used in post-HF calculations. STANDARD (=0) requests usage of the orbitals (from a corresponding HF-SCF calculation) without any modification. These are in the case of RHF/UHF the usual canonical HF orbitals and in the case of ROHF calculations the standard ROHF-orbitals with equal spatial parts for both the \(\alpha\) and the \(\beta\) spin orbitals. SEMICANONICAL (=1) forces in ROHF type calculations a transformation to so-called semicanonical orbitals which diagonalize the occupied-occupied and virtual-virtual blocks of the usual Fock-matrices. The use of semicanonical orbitals is, for example, required for ROHF-CCSD(T) calculations and for those calculations also automatically set. LOCAL requests a localization of the HF orbitals and this is currently done according to the Pipek-Mezey localization criterion. Note that it is strongly recommended not to use this keyword unless you know what are you doing. Default: STANDARD except for ROHF-CCSD(T) and ROHF-MP4 calculations for which SEMICANONICAL is the default.

**Type**: string**Possible Values**: STANDARD, SEMICANONICAL**Default**: STANDARD

- CFOUR_PERT_ORB (CFOUR)¶
CFOUR — Specifies the type of perturbed orbitals used in energy derivative calculations. STANDARD means that the gradient formulation assumes that the perturbed orbitals are not those in which the (perturbed) Fock matrix is diagonal. CANONICAL means that the perturbed orbitals are assumed to be canonical. This keyword is set automatically to CANONICAL in derivative calculations with methods which include triple excitations (MBPT[4]/MP4, CCSD+T[CCSD], CCSD[T], QCISD[T] and all iterative schemes like CCSDT-n and CC3) apart from CCSDT. IJ_CANONICAL requests a canonical perturbed-orbital treatment only for the occupied-occupied block of the unperturbed density matrix in analytic derivative calculations. For testing purposes, it is possible to force the use standard perturbed orbitals even in case of iterative triple excitations via the option FORCE_STANDA (dne?). Note also that in case of unrelaxed derivatives standard orbitals must be used. Default : STANDARD for all methods without triples (except CCSDT), CANONICAL for all methods with triples in case of relaxed derivatives.

**Type**: string**Possible Values**: STANDARD, CANONICAL, IJ_CANONICAL**Default**: No Default

- CFOUR_POINTS (CFOUR)¶
CFOUR — Specifies either single (=1, or SINGLE) or double (=2, DOUBLE) sided numerical differentiation in the finite difference evaluation of the Hessian. Two-sided numerical differentiation is considerably more accurate than the single-sided method, and its use is strongly recommended for production work.

**Type**: string**Possible Values**: SINGLE, DOUBLE**Default**: DOUBLE

- CFOUR_PRINT (CFOUR)¶
CFOUR — Controls the amount of printing in the energy and energy derivative calculation programs. Using a value of 1 will produce a modest amount of additional output over the default value of 0, which includes some useful information such as SCF eigenvectors, Fock matrix elements, etc.

**Type**: integer**Default**: 0

- CFOUR_PROP_INTEGRAL (CFOUR)¶
CFOUR — Allows storage of property integrals computed in

`xvdint`

on internal files (e.g.,`MOINTS`

and`GAMLAM`

, default choice INTERNAL, =0) or on external files (EXTERNAL, =1).**Type**: string**Possible Values**: INTERNAL, EXTERNAL**Default**: INTERNAL

- CFOUR_PROPS (CFOUR)¶
CFOUR — Specifies whether and which molecular property is calculated. OFF (=0) means that no property is calculated, FIRST_ORDER (=1) requests computation of various one-electron first-order properties (e.g., dipole moment, quadrupole moment, electric field gradient, spin densities,etc.), SECOND_ORDER (=2, in the next release replaced by STAT_POL) computes static electric polarizabilities, DYNAMICAL (=7, in the next release replaced by DYN_POL) requests the calculation of frequency-dependent polarizabilities (note that here an additional input of the frequency is required), NMR (=5) requests the calculation of NMR chemical shifts/chemical shielding tensors (by default using GIAOs), J_FC requests the calculation of the Fermi-Contact contribution to indirect spin-spin coupling constants, J_SD the calculation of the corresponding spin-dipole contribution, and J_SO the calculation of the corresponding spin-orbit contribution to J; HYPERPOL (=22) invokes a calculation of static hyperpolarizabilities, DYN_HYP (=23) requests the calculation of frequency-dependent hyperpolarizabilities, SHG (=24) the calculation of hyperpolarizabilities related to the second-harmonic generation, OPT_REC (=25) the computation of hyperpolarizabilities related to optical rectification, VERDET (=26) the calculation of Verdet constants.

**Type**: string**Possible Values**: OFF, FIRST_ORDER, SECOND_ORDER, NMR, HYPERPOL, DYN_HYP, SHG, OPT_REC, VERDET**Default**: OFF

- CFOUR_QRHF_GENERAL (CFOUR)¶
CFOUR — The presence of this keyword specifies that a QRHF based CC calculation, or alternatively, an SCF calculation that uses the CFOUR_QRHFGUES option, is to be performed.

**Type**: array**Default**: No Default

- CFOUR_QRHF_ORBITAL (CFOUR)¶
CFOUR — By default, in QRHF calculations, electrons are removed from the highest occupied orbital in a symmetry block (symmetry block HOMO), while electrons are added to the lowest unoccupied orbital within a symmetry block (symmetry block LUMO). The purpose of the QRHF_ORBITAL keyword is to allow additional flexibility in choosing which orbitals will have their occupation numbers altered. The value of this keyword gives the offset with respect to the default orbital for the orbital which will be depopulated (or populated) in QRHF-CC calculations. For calculations involving more than one removal or addition of electrons, values are separated by commas and correspond to the CFOUR_QRHF_GENERAL input on a one-to-one basis. For example, specifying CFOUR_QRHF_GENERAL =2/-4, QRHF_ORBITAL=3/2 means that an electron will be added to the third lowest virtual in symmetry block 2 and another will be removed from the second highest occupied orbital in symmetry block 4. Examples given later in this manual further illustrate the QRHF input options and may help to clarify any confusion resulting from this documentation. (Default : 1)

**Type**: array**Default**: No Default

- CFOUR_QRHFGUES (CFOUR)¶
CFOUR — If this keyword is set to ON (=1), then the QRHF orbitals specified by the CFOUR_QRHF_GENERAL, CFOUR_QRHF_ORBITAL and CFOUR_QRHF_SPIN (nyi?) keywords are used as a starting guess for a restarted SCF procedure. This can be an extremely useful way to converge “difficult” SCF solutions, such as those that correspond to states that are not the lowest states of a given symmetry. Note that when this option is used, the calculation that is performed is not a QRHF-CC calculation; it is instead a UHF-based or ROHF-based calculation, depending on what type of reference is specified by the CFOUR_REFERENCE keyword. The QRHF aspect of the calculation is used simply as a device to converge the orbitals.

**Type**: boolean**Default**: false

- CFOUR_RAMAN_INT (CFOUR)¶
CFOUR — ON (=1) requests a calculation of Raman intensities based on the geometrical derivatives of the static polarizability tensor, while DYN (=2) requests a calculation of Raman intensities based on the derivatives of the dynamical polarizability tensor.

**Type**: string**Possible Values**: ON, DYN, OFF**Default**: OFF

- CFOUR_RAMAN_ORB (CFOUR)¶
CFOUR — Specifies whether Raman intensities are calculated with orbital relaxation with respect to the electric field perturbation (RELAXED, = 1) or without orbital relaxation (UNRELAXED, = 0).

**Type**: string**Possible Values**: RELAXED, UNRELAXED**Default**: UNRELAXED

- CFOUR_RDO (CFOUR)¶
CFOUR — Specifies whether or not relaxed density natural orbitals are to be computed. This option only has meaning for a correlated calculation. For =0, Do not compute. For =1, compute.

**Type**: boolean**Default**: true

- CFOUR_REFERENCE (CFOUR)¶
CFOUR — Specifies the type of SCF calculation to be performed. RHF (= 0) requests a restricted Hartree-Fock reference; UHF (= 1) an unrestricted Hartree-Fock reference; ROHF (= 2) a restricted open-shell Hartree-Fock calculation; TCSCF (=3) a two-configurational SCF calculation, and CASSCF (=4) a complete-active space SCF calculations (currently not implemented).

**Psi4 Interface:**Keyword subject to translation from value of REFERENCE unless set explicitly.**Type**: string**Possible Values**: RHF, UHF, ROHF, TCSCF, CASSCF**Default**: RHF

- CFOUR_RELATIVISTIC (CFOUR)¶
CFOUR — Specifies the treatment of relativistic effects. The default is a non-relativistic treatment (OFF), while perturbational treatments are invoked via MVD1 (mass-velocity and 1-electron Darwin contribution), MVD2 (mass-velocity and 1- and 2-electron Darwin contribution), DPT2 (second-order direct perturbation theory approach), SF-DPT4 (scalar-relativistic part of fourth-order direct perturbation theory, DPT4 (full fourth-order DPT including spin-orbit corrections), SF-DPT6 (scalar-relativistic part of sixth-order direct perturbation theory), SFREE (spin-free treatment), X2C1E (spin-free X2C-1e treatment), or DPT (synonym with DPT2).

**Type**: string**Possible Values**: OFF, MVD1, MVd2, DPT2, SF-DPT4, DPT4, SF-DPT6, SFREE, X2C1E, DPT**Default**: OFF

- CFOUR_RELAX_DENS (CFOUR)¶
CFOUR — Specifies whether the relaxed density matrix is computed for correlated wave functions. OFF (= 0) The relaxed density will not be computed, ON (= 1) it will be computed.

**Type**: boolean**Default**: false

- CFOUR_RES_RAMAN (CFOUR)¶
CFOUR — This option can be used to convert an analytically calculated gradient vector to a particular normal coordinate representation. A useful application is to calculate the gradient of an electronically excited state in the normal coordinate representation of the ground electronic state, as this provides a first approximation to resonance Raman intensities (hence the name of the keyword). Calculations that use the this option require the externally supplied force constant matrix

`FCMFINAL`

, which is written to disk during the course of both analytic and finite-difference vibrational frequency calculations. No such transformation is performed if OFF (=0); while ON (=1) directs the program to evaluate the gradient and transform it to the chosen set of normal coordinates. A warning message is printed if the force constant matrix is unavailable.**Type**: boolean**Default**: false

- CFOUR_RESTART_CC (CFOUR)¶
CFOUR — Offers the possibility to restart a CC calculation which stopped for various reasons, e.g. time limit, in the correlation part. However, note that a restart which is specified by ON (= 1) needs the following files of the previous unfinished calculation:

`JOBARC`

,`JAINDX`

,`MOINTS`

, and`MOABCD`

.**Type**: boolean**Default**: false

- CFOUR_ROT_EVEC (CFOUR)¶
CFOUR — Specifies which eigenvector of the orbital rotation Hessian is to be used to rotate the original SCF orbitals. By default, it will use that associated with the lowest eigenvalue of the totally symmetric part of the block-factored Hessian, as this choice often leads to the lowest energy SCF solution. For RHF stability checks, only those instabilities which correspond to RHF solutions will be considered. It is important to understand that following non-symmetric eigenvectors lowers the symmetry of the wavefunction and that following RHF –> UHF stabilities leads to a UHF solution. To converge the SCF roots associated with such instabilities, one must run the calculation in reduced symmetry and as a closed-shell UHF case, respectively. Value

*n*directs the program to follow the vector associated with the*n*th lowest eigenvalue having the proper symmetry (totally symmetric) and spin (RHF–>RHF or UHF–>UHF) properties. 0 means use the lowest eigenvalue.**Type**: integer**Default**: 0

- CFOUR_SAVE_INTS (CFOUR)¶
CFOUR — Tells CFOUR whether to delete large files (AO integrals and

The default value is currently 1000 (no damping), but a value of 500 is recommended in particular for transition metal compounds where the SCF convergence is often troublesome.

**Psi4 Interface:**Keyword subject to translation from value of DAMPING_PERCENTAGE unless set explicitly.**Type**: integer**Default**: 1000

- CFOUR_SCF_EXPORDER (CFOUR)¶

**Type**: integer**Default**: 0

- CFOUR_SPHERICAL (CFOUR)¶
CFOUR — Specifies whether spherical harmonic (5d, 7f, 9g, etc.) or Cartesian (6d, 10f, 15g, etc.) basis functions are to be used. ON (= 1) uses spherical harmonics, OFF (= 0) uses Cartesians.

**Psi4 Interface:**Keyword set according to basis design when BASIS is used instead of CFOUR_BASIS. Keyword subject to translation from value of PUREAM unless set explicitly.**Type**: boolean**Default**: true

- CFOUR_SPIN_FLIP (CFOUR)¶
CFOUR — Controls whether excitation energy calculations allow for a “spin flip” which changes the \(M_s\) quantum number. Such calculations have some advantages for biradicals and are currently implemented (together with gradients) for CIS and CIS(D) calculations. Options are OFF and ON.

**Type**: boolean**Default**: false

- CFOUR_SPIN_ORBIT (CFOUR)¶
CFOUR — Experimental Use! ON (=1) requests calculation of one-electron spin-orbit integrals. MEANSO additionally gives a mean-field treatment of the two-electron terms (spin-orbit mean field treatment as described Mol. Phys. 98, 1823-1833 (2000)).

**Type**: string**Possible Values**: ON, MEANSO, OFF**Default**: OFF

**Type**: boolean**Default**: false

- CFOUR_SPINROTATION (CFOUR)¶
CFOUR — Specifies whether nuclear spin-rotation tensors are computed within a NMR chemical shift calculation (ON, =1) or not (OFF, =9). In the case of electronic g-tensor calculations for open-shell molecules this keyword controls the calculation of the electronic spin-rotation tensor.

Use of C1 is of course equivalent to setting CFOUR_SYMMETRY =OFF in the input. The DEFAULT option (which is the default) uses the highest order Abelian subgroup.

**Type**: string**Possible Values**: DEFAULT, C1, C2, CS, CI, C2V, C2H, D2, D2H, OFF**Default**: DEFAULT

- CFOUR_SYM_CHECK (CFOUR)¶
CFOUR — In principle can be used to force the SCF to converge a solution for which the density matrix transforms as the totally symmetric representation of the point group (i.e. no broken symmetry solutions). The code seems to work in most cases, but has currently been implemented for point groups with E type representation and not for those with triply-, quadruply- or pentuply-degenerate representations. Extending the code to those cases is probably straightforward, and the reader is encouraged to do so if (s)he is so inclined. SYM_CHECK=0 “forces” the high-symmetry solution. SYM_CHECK=OVERRIDE (=1) doesn’t. The latter is the default.

**Type**: boolean**Default**: true

- CFOUR_SYMMETRY (CFOUR)¶
CFOUR — Specifies what subgroup of the full point group is to be used in the energy and/or gradient calculation (the computational point group). OFF (=1) forces a no symmetry run (in \(C_1\) ) and ON (=0) runs the calculation in the largest self-adjoint subgroup ( \(D_{2h}\) and its subgroups).

**Type**: boolean**Default**: true

- CFOUR_T3_EXTRAPOL (CFOUR)¶

- CFOUR_UPDATE_HESSIAN (CFOUR)¶
CFOUR — Specifies whether or not the Hessian update is carried out. OFF (= 0) uses the initial Hessian (however supplied, either the default guess or a

`FCMINT`

file), ON (= 1) updates it during subsequent optimization cycles. (not in current public version).**Type**: boolean**Default**: true

- CFOUR_VIBRATION (CFOUR)¶
CFOUR — Specifies whether (harmonic) vibrational frequencies are calculated or not. If the default NO (=0) is specified then no frequencies are calculated. For ANALYTIC, vibrational frequencies are determined from analytically computed second derivatives, and for FINDIF (=2) vibrational frequencies are calculated from a force field obtained by numerical differentiation of analytically evaluated gradients (or even single-point energies) using symmetry-adapted mass-weighted Cartesian coordinates. If vibrational frequencies are calculated, a normal mode analysis using the computed force-constant matrix is performed, rotationally projected frequencies are computed, infrared intensities are determined, and zero-point energies (ZPE) are evaluated.

- CFOUR_XFIELD (CFOUR)¶
CFOUR — Specifies the X-component of an external electric field. The value must be specified as an integer and the field used by the program will be the value of the keyword \(\times 10^{-6}\). This allows field strengths \(|\varepsilon| > 10^{-6}\) to be used.

**Type**: integer**Default**: 0

- CFOUR_XFORM_TOL (CFOUR)¶
