Reference energies

CCSD(T)/CBS, MP2/CBS only for larger clusters


The default reference values for the larger clusters are only MP2/CBS what is not sufficient for benchmarking. More accurate reference data are available.

Alternative reference data

The data set contains following sets of alternative reference values:
