37.9 DFSAPT: a density-fitting DFT-SAPT program for arbitrary monomer basis sets

DFSAPT is an alternative density-fitting DFT-SAPT program which works with arbitrary monomer basis sets and which can be used for extended dimer systems of about 800 electrons, see Ref.[8].

For a standard DFSAPT calculation using a dimer centered basis set the Molpro input
file looks very similar to a corresponding DF-DFT-SAPT claculation, see
example `h2o_2-dfsapt.com`

(section 37.9.1). There are,
however, two important points to be taken care of:

**important #1**- Set
`oldnorm=1`

before any call to the DFSAPT program. **important #2**- Add numbers to atom labels in the geometry blocks. These have to have a subsequent ordering, see examples 37.9.1-37.9.4.

A corresponding calculation, in which the water monomers are calculated in their
own local basis set (monomer centered basis set calculation) is presented in
example `h2o_2-mc-dfsapt.com`

(section 37.9.2).
Note, however, that very large basis sets are required to converge the
individual interaction energy contributions. In order to improve the basis
set convergence, additional midbond functions can be added as is exemplified
in example `h2o_2-mcplus-dfsapt.com`

(section 37.9.3).
Here the def2-TZVP basis functions for the Neon atom were positioned in between
the OH hydrogen bridge.

A complete (DCBS) DFSAPT calculation with additional (HF) correction and using the PBE0AC(BRJ) xc potential (with automatic asymptotic correction) is shown in section 37.9.4.

Note that in contrast to the DFT-SAPT/DF-DFT-SAPT programs the exchange-dispersion energy is not calculated on the coupled level. Instead, the coupled energies are estimated by scaling the uncoupled ones with a factor which has been obtained from a linear fit to exact results, see Ref.[8].
