How to run the DSD-PBEP86-D3BJ double hybrid functional

 

Instructions are only given here for recent versions of various quantum chemical codes. For earlier versions, see the supporting information to Papers 238 and 251, or contact me. There are two slightly different parametrizations, one in Paper 238 (preliminary communication), another (together with dozens of DSD functionals, optimzied in a more consistent way) in Paper 251. The latter parametrization is given below

Gaussian 09 revision D.01 

This Gaussian version includes an implementation of Grimme's DFT-D3 empirical dispersion correction. Unfortunately, custom parameters for it cannot be set via the command line or IOps: instead, the parameters can be set via environment variables. For example, if your command shell is csh or tcsh, then the prologue should execute the following commands:

setenv GAUSS_DFTD3_S6 480000
setenv GAUSS_DFTD3_SR6 0
setenv GAUSS_DFTD3_S8 0
setenv GAUSS_DFTD3_ABJ1 0
setenv GAUSS_DFTD3_ABJ2 5600000

Then for Gaussian itself (the example here is for water dimer):

ORCA (recent versions):

The keyword pair DSD-PBEP86 D3BJ should do what you want without further input

 

MRCC (recent versions):

The keyword DSDPBEP86 will do what you want without further input
