[ADF-LIST] Basis set choice

Dear H. Afrouzi,

Is the "stabilization energy" (in Gaussian) and the "interaction energy" 
(Eint in ADF) the same?

The interaction energy is the energy difference between the unrelaxed 
(promoted) fragments and the molecule. Maybe the "stabilization energy" 
is between relaxed (groundstate) fragments and the molecule?

Furthermore, I suggest to use at least a triple-zeta basis set if one 
wants to discuss energy differences. (especially for postHF methods)

Kind regards,
Marc Raupach

PS: What are the energy differences you have calculated with Gaussian 
and ADF? Or how big is the difference between the energies?
