One of GAMESS or SPLINE is required.

Required keywords

Keyword Type Description
GAMESS section A Gaussian basis set in roughly GAMESS format, although any of the spherical harmonic keywords from the description can be used.
SPLINE section Fit to a 1-D spline multiplied by spherical harmonics. The first value in the section should be one of the spherical harmonics, followed by x,y pairs in atomic units.

Optional keywords

Keyword Type Default Description
CUSP float none For a SPLINE input, enforce a cusp at r=0 with the derivative given. For example, for H, CUSP should be -1, for Ne -10, etc.
ZERO_DERIVATIVE flag False For a GAMESS input, strictly enforces derivative at r=0 (i.e. cusp) to be zero. To be used when electron-nucleus cusp conditions on all-electron atoms are treated in the Jastrow factor
SPACING float 0.02 For GAMESS input. Spacing with which the independent variable is discretized. The default value is a safe choice for pseudoatoms, heavier all-electron atoms might require reduced value corresponding to a finer grid.
NORENORMALIZE flag False Do not renormalize the basis functions
CUTOFF float infinity Forces a smooth cutoff at a specified distance. Otherwise, a safe cutoff is calculated automatically.
NORMTYPE string GAMESSNORM Specify the normalization type. GAMESSNORM or CRYSTAL
