dc.description.abstractThe improved virtual orbital-complete active space configuration interaction (IVO-CASCI) method is extended to enable geometry optimization and the calculation of vibrational frequencies for ground and excited states using numerical energy gradients. Applications consider the ground state geometries and vibrational frequencies of the Be2, LiF, H2S, and HCN molecules, as well as excited state properties for HCN, systems that are sufficiently complex to access the efficacy of the method. Comparisons with other standard approaches (self-consistent field, second order Möller-Plesset perturbation theory, complete active space self-consistent field, and coupled cluster singles and doubles methods) demonstrate that the numerical gradient version of the IVO-CASCI approach generally fares comparable to or better for all systems studied. The accurate estimates for the Be2 bond length and vibrational frequency are notable since many other computationally facile methods produce poor results.en
