TURBOMOLE Release Notes

TURBOMOLE Version 7.0 (July 2015)

New features:

  • DFT calculations for periodic systems (new module: riper)
    riper is a module for the calculation of ground state energies for molecular and periodic systems at the RI-DFT level [1,2] 
  • Low-scaling MP2 and MP2-F12 (new module: pnoccsd)
    The pnoccsd program contains pair natural orbital-based correlation methods (hybrid OSV-PNO approximation) with low-cost scaling for large systems. (currently restricted to MP2) [3,4]  
  • Two-component CCS, ADC(2), CIS(inf), and CC2 excitation energies and excited state transtition moments for ADC(2) and CC2 (ricc2) [5] 
  • Self-defined and several pre-defined density functionals (ridft, rdgrad, dscf, grad, aoforce, escf) now available through the XCFun library version 1.99 (https://repo.ctcc.no/projects/xcfun/wiki


  • RI-RPA is now parallelized with OpenMP (rirpa)


  • No program limitation for the number of atoms and the number of basis functions

  • New scripts and tools:
    • Interactive property program (new module: proper
      proper is an interactive program for first-order properties (expectation values) from one-electron densities, population analysis, and generation of interface files for visualization
    • Energy decomposition analysis (EDA) (ridft and new module promowa
    • Grimme PBEh-3c functional, including DFT-D3 and gCP [6] 
  • TmoleX 4.1
    • Coupling to the 2D structure editor JChempaint [7]
    • 2-c ECPs
    • excited state potential energy scans
    • re-engineered the Orbital/Density Plot
    • remote machine administration simplified and extended

Bug fixes:

  • Automatic clean-up of memory by the SMP/GA version of ridft/rdgrad for stability.
