AllPoints
Type:Bool
Default value:No
GUI name:Force use of all points
Description:ADF makes use of symmetry in the numerical integrations. Points are generated for the irreducible wedge, a symmetry unique sub region of space. Optionally the symmetry equivalent points are also used. This is achieved by setting this key to True.

Check_CPKS_From_Iteration
Type:Integer
Default value:1
Description:Solution of the CPKS equations is an iterative process, and convergence is achieved if the difference between U1 matrix of successive iterations falls below a certain threshold. This key can be used to determine at which iteration the checking should start taking place.
Debug
Type:String
Description:For debugging purposes. Options: fit, hessian, b1, densities, numbers, symmetry, all.
Hessian
Type:Multiple Choice
Default value:reflect
Options:[reflect, average]
Description:Whether the final Hessian is obtained by reflecting or averaging?
Max_CPKS_Iterations
Type:Integer
Default value:20
Description:Calculating the analytical frequencies requires the solution of the Coupled Perturbed Kohn-Sham (CPKS) equations, which is an iterative process. If convergence is not achieved (a warning will be printed in the output if this is the case) then this subkey can be used to increase the number of iterations, although convergence is not guaranteed. The user required accuracy of the U1 matrix, as well as the ADF integration accuracy, can effect the rates of convergence.
Print
Type:String
Description:Primarily for debugging purposes. Options: eigs, u1, parts. Choosing EIGS results in the print out of the MO eigenvectors, while U1 results in the print out of the U1 matrices. Except for small molecules this will result in a lot of data being output, and so they are not recommended. Choosing PARTS results in the print out of various sub-hessians that add up to give the final analytical hessian.

Default value:No
Description:Request ADF to print analysis of the normal modes independently of AMS.
U1_Accuracy
Type:Float
Default value:5.0
Description:Solution of the CPKS equations is an iterative process, and convergence is achieved if the difference between U1 matrix of successive iterations falls below a certain threshold. This subkey can be used to set the threshold. The accuracy of the U1 will be 10**(-x). So, the higher the number the more accurate the U1 will be. While this parameter effects the accuracy of the frequencies, other factors also effect the accuracy of the frequencies, especially the ADF integration accuracy.

AnalyticalHessian
Type:Integer
Default value:0
Description:This will calculate the analytical derivative of the energy w.r.t. the Lagrange multiplier up to the specified SCF iteration.

Constraints
Type:Float List
Description:The values of the constraints. If CHARGEANDSPIN, constraints to the alpha and beta electrons need to be specified sequentially. One more electron => CONSTRAINTS -1.0. One less electron => CONSTRAINTS 1.0. If the CDFT type is EXCITEDCDFT, CONSTRAINTS=1.0 is recommended. Other values are technically possible but have not been tested yet.

Description:If true, the multipliers chosen in INITIALMULTIPLIERS will not be optimized and will be constant throughout the entire SCF procedure.
ExcitedCDFT

This is the essence of the eXcited Constrained DFT (XCDFT) method(P. Ramos, M. Pavanello, Low-lying excited states by constrained DFT, Journal of Chemical Physics 148, 144103 (2018) https://doi.org/10.1063/1.5018615) for the calculation of low-lying single excitations. XCDFT is found to correctly reproduce the energy surface topology at conical intersections between the ground state and the first singly excited state and can also accounts for the condensed phase effects in solvated chromophores where typical Delta SCF methods variationally collapse.
InitialMultipliers
Type:Float List
Description:If available, a guess for the Lagrange multipliers can be entered.
MaxIter

Type:Bool
Default value:No
Description:Relevant for XCDFT. In the XCDFT method orthogonality is not imposed between the KS-orbitals of ground and excited states. If METRIC is specified, the degree of mixing of the single excited state with the ground state or high-order excitations is calculated. Three parameters are calculated: p, m and d. The parameters p and m will give information about the amount of mixing with the ground state, while parameter d will determine the mixing with high order excitations. Additional information about the origin of these parameters can be found in the literature (P. Ramos, M. Pavanello, Low-lying excited states by constrained DFT, Journal of Chemical Physics 148, 144103 (2018) https://doi.org/10.1063/1.5018615)

Description:This specifies the number of sets of atoms to be considered. For example, if the user wishes to constrain a positive charge on one part of the system, and a negative charge on another part, NCONSTRAINTS should be set to two. There is no limit on the number of constraints. However, SCF convergence becomes an issue with more than 2 constraints. Note: NCONSTRAINTS>1 is untested.

This statistical ensemble is a natural choice when comparing two chemical systems with a different number of electrons.
Radius
Type:Float
Default value:0.0
Description:This option adds a sphere around each nucleus, excluding all points inside it. This can help to separate domains around an atom or to exclude core electrons. Be careful when using this option. In particular, the radius of the sphere should exceed two or three times the [Spacing] value to be effective. By default, no spheres are added.
Spacing
Type:Float
Default value:0.1
Unit:Bohr
Description:Specifies spacing (distance between neighboring points) of the rectangular Cartesian grid used when searching for DD domains. It may be useful to specify a smaller value (or increase the size of the grid, see [Border] key) if a substantial part of the electronic density is accounted for.

For larger basis sets (or for benchmarking purposes) a ‘VeryGood’ fit set is recommended. Note that the FitSetQuality heavily influences the computational cost of the calculation. If not specified or ‘Auto’, the RIHartreeFock%FitSetQuality is used.
Formalism
Type:Multiple Choice
Default value:Auto
Options:[Auto, RI, LT, All]
Description:Specifies the formalism for the calculation of the MP2 correlation energy. ‘LT’ means Laplace Transformed MP2 (also referred to as AO-PARI-MP2), ‘RI’ means that a conventional RI-MP2 is carried out. If ‘Auto’, LT will be used in case of DOD double hybrids and SOS MP2, and RI will be used in all other cases. ‘All’ means that both RI and LT formalisms are used in the calculation. For a RPA or GW calculation, the formalism is always LT, irrespective of the formalism specified with this key.
IntegrationQuality
Type:Multiple Choice
Options:[VeryBasic, Basic, Normal, Good, VeryGood]
Description:Specifies the integration quality to be used in the MBPT calculation. If not specified, the RIHartreeFock%IntegrationQuality is used.
ThresholdQuality
Type:Multiple Choice
Options:[VeryBasic, Basic, Normal, Good, VeryGood]
Description:Controls the distances between atomic centers for which the product of two basis functions is not fitted any more. Especially for spatially extended, large systems, ‘VERYBASIC’ and ‘BASIC’ can lead to large computational savings, but the fit is also more approximate. This keyword is only meaningful when the LT formalism is used. If not specified, the RIHartreeFock%ThresholdQuality is used.
nFrequency
Type:Integer
Default value:12
Description:Number of imaginary frequency points. This key is only relevant for RPA and GW and will be ignored if used in an AO-PARI-MP2 calculation. 12 Points is the default for a RPA calculation. It is technically possible to use a different number of imaginary frequency points than for imaginary time. The maximum number of points which can be requested for imaginary frequency integration is 42. Important note: The computation time and memory requirements roughyl scale linearly with the number of imaginary frequency points. However, memory can be an issue for RPA and GW when the number of imaginary frequency points is high. In case a job crashes, it is advised to increase the number of nodes since the necessary memory distributes over all nodes.
nTime
Type:Integer
GUI name:Number of time points
Description:Number of imaginary time points (only relevant in case the Laplace Transformed (LT) formalism is used). In the many-body-perturbation theory module in ADF, the polarizability (or Kohn-Sham density response function) is evaluated in imaginary time to exploit sparsity in the AO basis. For MP2, this is often referred to as a Laplace transform. For MP2, 9 points are the default. This is a safe choice, guaranteeing accuracies higher than 1 Kj/mol for most systems (For many simple organic systems, 6 points are sufficient for good accuracy). Only for systems with a very small HOMO-LUMO gap or low-lying core states (heavy elements starting from the 4th row of the periodic table) more points might be necessary. In principle, the same considerations apply for RPA and GW as well, however, the accuracy requirements are somewhat higher and 12 point are the default for RPA. In a GW calculation, the number of points is adjusted according to the numerical quality. Using less than 9 points is strongly discouraged except for the simplest molecules. In ADF2019, it can happen that the algorithm determining the imaginary time grid does not converge. In this case, the usual reason is that the number of points is too small and more points need to be specified. Starting from AMS2020, this does not happen any more. In case the imaginary time grid does not converge, the number of points is automatically adjusted until it does. The computation time of AO-PARI-MP2, RPA, and GW scales linearly with the number of imaginary time points.

Formalism
Type:Multiple Choice

ZORA means the Zero Order Regular Approximated Hamiltonian, recommended. X2C and RA-X2C both stand for an exact transformation of the 4-component Dirac equation to 2-components. X2C is the modified Dirac equation by Dyall. RA-X2C is the regular approach to the modified Dirac equation.

GUI name:Relativity
Description:None: No relativistic effects. Scalar: Scalar relativistic. This option comes at very little cost. Spin-Orbit: Spin-orbit coupled. This is the best level of theory, but it is (4-8 times) more expensive than a normal calculation. Spin-orbit effects are generally quite small, unless there are very heavy atoms in your system, especially with p valence electrons (like Pb). See also the SpinOrbitMagnetization subkey.
Potential
Type:Multiple Choice
Default value:MAPA
Options:[MAPA, SAPA]
Description:Starting from ADF2017 instead of SAPA (the Sum of neutral Atomical potential Approximation) MAPA is used by default for ZORA. The MAPA (the Minumium of neutral Atomical potential Approximation) at a point is the minimum of the neutral Atomical potentials at that point. Advantage of MAPA over SAPA is that the gauge dependence of ZORA is reduced. The ZORA gauge dependency is small for almost all properties, except for the electron density very close to a heavy nucleus. The electron density very close to a heavy nucleus can be used for the interpretation of isomer shifts in Mossbauer spectroscopy.
SpinOrbitMagnetization
Type:Multiple Choice
Default value:CollinearZ
Options:[NonCollinear, Collinear, CollinearX, CollinearY, CollinearZ]
Description:Relevant only for spin-orbit coupling and if unrestricted key has been activated. Most XC functionals have as one ingredient the spin polarization in case of unrestricted calculations. Normally the direction of the spin quantization axis is arbitrary and conveniently chosen to be the z-axis. However, in a spin-orbit calculation the direction matters, and it is arbitrary to put the z-component of the magnetization vector into the XC functional. There is also the exotic option to choose the quantization axis along the x or y axis. It is also possible to plug the size of the magnetization vector into the XC functional. This is called the non-collinear approach. - NonCollinear: the non-collinear method. - CollinearXYZ: use the x, y, or z component as spin polarization for the XC functional. - Collinear: the same as CollinearZ.

AccelerationMethod
Type:Multiple Choice
Default value:ADIIS
Options:[ADIIS, fDIIS, LISTb, LISTf, LISTi, MESA, SDIIS]
Description:SCF acceleration method. The default method is ADIIS, which is actually a mix of A-DIIS and SDIIS: A-DIIS is used at the start of the SCF and SDIIS is used closer to convergence, with a smooth switching function. The other methods are from the LIST family developed by Alex Wang and co-workers. They may perform better than the default in some situations. Setting AccelerationMethod to SDIIS effectively disables A-DIIS and is equivalent to the legacy mixing+DIIS method.
Converge
Type:Float List
Default value:[1e-06, 0.001]
Description:The criterion to stop the SCF updates. The tested error is the commutator of the Fock matrix and the P-matrix (=density matrix in the representation of the basis functions) from which the F-matrix was obtained. This commutator is zero when absolute self-consistency is reached. Convergence is considered reached when the maximum element falls below SCFcnv and the norm of the matrix below 10*SCFcnv. The default is fairly strict. A second criterion which plays a role when the SCF procedure has difficulty converging. When in any SCF procedure the currently applicable criterion does not seem to be achievable, the program stops the SCF. When the secondary criterion (sconv2) has been met, only a warning is issued and the program continues normally.

Default value:300
GUI name:Maximum number of SCF cycles
Description:The maximum number of SCF cycles allowed.
LShift
Type:Float
Default value:0.0
Unit:Hartree
GUI name:Level shift
Description:The level shifting parameter. The diagonal elements of the Fock matrix, in the representation of the orbitals of the previous iteration, are raised by vshift hartree energy units for the virtual orbitals. This may help to solve convergence problems when during the SCF iterations charge is sloshing back and forth between different orbitals that are close in energy and all located around the Fermi level. Level shifting is not supported in the case of Spin-Orbit coupling. At the moment properties that use virtuals, like excitation energies, response properties, NMR calculations, will give incorrect results if level shifting is applied.
LShift_cyc
Type:Integer
Default value:1
Description:Specifies that level shifting is not turned on before the given SCF cycle number (for the start-up geometry).
LShift_err
Type:Float
Default value:0.0
Description:Specifies that level shifting will be turned off by the program as soon as the SCF error drops below a threshold.

GUI name:Mixing 1st SCF cycle
Description:The mixing parameter at the 1st SCF cycle.
OldSCF
Type:Bool
Default value:No
Description:Disable the default SCF algorithm and use the old SCF algorithm. The default SCF improves performance for big systems on big machines (when your calculation uses many tasks). It is also recommended for machines with slow disk I/O as it writes less data to disk. The default convergence method supported is A-DIIS, but LISTi is also supported.
