There are still a few things I don't understand in the fragments approach
used by ADF. (I mean fragments larger than one atom.)
When I calculate the following two values, where exactly does the
difference between them come from (apart from BSSE)?
(1) DE = E (AB) - E (A) - E (B), with E = 'Total Bonding Energy' from a
geometry optimization of AB, A and B
(2) the 'Total Bonding Energy' from single point calculation of BE, built
up from the fragments A and B
Maybe (1) is not correct, because this 'Total Bonding Energies'
are not really 'total energies'? I'm sorry if this is an FAQ...
Thank you in advance,
