daltonproject.dalton.compute(molecule: Molecule, basis: Basis, qc_method: QCMethod, properties: Property, environment: Optional[Environment] = None, compute_settings: Optional[ComputeSettings] = None, filename: Optional[str] = None, force_recompute: Optional[bool] = False) OutputParser

Run a calculation using the Dalton program.

Parameters
  • molecule – Molecule on which a calculations is performed. This can also be an atom, a fragment, or any collection of atoms.

  • basis – Basis set to use in the calculation.

  • qc_method – Quantum chemistry method, e.g., HF, DFT, or CC, and associated settings.

  • properties – Properties of molecule to be calculated, geometry optimization, excitation energies, etc.

  • environment – TODO: Environment …

  • compute_settings – Settings for the calculation, e.g., number of MPI processes and OpenMP threads, work and scratch directory, etc.

  • filename – Optional user-specified filename that will be used for input and output files. If not specified a name will be generated as a hash of the input.

  • force_recompute – Recompute even if the output files already exist.

Returns

OutputParser instance that contains the filename of the output produced in the calculation and can be used to extract results from the output.

daltonproject.dalton.compute_farm(molecules: List[Molecule], basis: Basis, qc_method: QCMethod, properties: Property, compute_settings: Optional[ComputeSettings] = None, filenames: Optional[List[str]] = None, force_recompute: bool = False) List[OutputParser]

Run a series of calculations using the Dalton program.

Parameters
  • molecules – List of molecules on which calculations are performed.

  • basis – Basis set to use in the calculations.

  • qc_method – Quantum chemistry method, e.g., HF, DFT, or CC, and associated settings used for all calculations.

  • properties – Properties of molecule to be calculated, geometry optimization, excitation energies, etc., computed for all molecules.

  • compute_settings – Settings for the calculations, e.g., number of MPI processes and OpenMP threads, work and scratch directory, and more.

  • filenames – Optional list of user-specified filenames that will be used for input and output files. If not specified names will be generated as a hash of the individual inputs.

  • force_recompute – Recompute even if the output files already exist.

Returns

List of OutputParser instances each of which contains the filename of the output produced in the calculation and can be used to extract results from the output.
