Dear Dawid,
RS3 computes the third-order energy using the first-order (CASPT2) wave function. The CASPT2 calculations are done in intermediate normalization, and the squared norm of the total wave function is seen under SQ.NORM (first column) in the print of the iterations. Thus, < Ref|Ref>=1/sqnorm, and you can take sqrt(1/sqnorm) as
the coefficient of the reference function |Ref> in the first-order wave function. At the end of a multi-state calculation, the program solves the SG equation HC=SCE in the basis of the first-order wave functions (so for 3 states it's a 3x3 eigenvalue problem). This yields a transformation between the states, similar to MS-CASPT2 (but at a higher level). The transformed states are orthogonal. The caspt2 and caspt3 energies for the transformed wave functions are the „ROTATED“ values. The dipole and transition moments are computed as well and printed for the original as well as for the rotated wave functions. Note that the printed dipole moment expectation values and transition moments are always computed using normalized wave functions.
The weights of the references <Ref(ROT)|RefF(ROT)> in the rotated wavefunctions are printed after "Norm of relaxed reference (rot)“.
I had tried the calculation you had sent earlier, but the third state did not converge.
Best regards
Joachim
