This number can be increased in the "settings" file, specifically in
Then the ADF package will have to be recompiled though, which requires
the source code,
and the correct compiler (and compiler version).
If you wish to try this, please contact us at support_at_scm.com for
as one other technical parameter in the settings file (related to
strings) will have to
be adapted before recompilation.
Some groups doing QM/MM calculations are successfully using ADF on
thousands of atoms.
