Dear Dr. Werner,

Thank you very much for your reply.  I look forward to the new
version of MOLPRO.  As far as the Brueckner orbitals are concerned, I
am interested in using them to compute molecular properties as laid
out by Hesselmann and Jansen in CPL 315 p.248 [1999].  I am aware
that the treatment laid out therein is not strictly rigorous, however
the agreement with literature values seemed satisfactory.  Their
method seems to provide a cheaper way to calculate such quantities
than finite field calculations, and the densities so obtained provide
at least a qualitative measure of the correlation effects (relative
to SCF calculations).  Anyway, thank you very much for adding this
functionality to MOLPRO.  Sincerely,

Dave Moore

This is to inform you that in the upcoming version 2001.1 the 
first-order density matrices will be available for MP2 and QCISD
and can be in dump records as usual. The same is true
for the corresponding natural orbitals. I am sorry, but 
this feature is not and will not be available in 2000.1.

Following your note, I will also modify the program to store
the Brueckner orbitals in a dump record. However, I do not
believe that it is a correct appraoch to use the Brueckner
orbitals to produce a density matrix. The correct effective
densities require to perform CPHF and CPCC calculations in order
to compute the response of the orbitals and amplitudes. This
is rather complicated stuff and unfortunately not so quick
to implement for all methods (CCSD, MP3 and MP4 are under way).

Best regards
H.-J. Werner
