ADZP/DZP basis: missing atom and invalid basis data

Just Got Here

I found that the ADZP and DZP basis sets miss their "Cr" atom data. The original authors' website ( has it.

Also, I suspect there is data corruption or incorrect raw data in the "Te" atom--when dialed, it resulted in this kind of error:


java.rmi.RemoteException: An unexpected exception occuredNext contraction ends before the start of the previous one, not allowed!; nested exception is:
com.sourceforge.knecs.util.converters.FormatException: Next contraction ends before the start of the previous one, not allowed!

I suspect the same problems exist in the other sets (ATZP, TZP, AQZP, QZP, etc).

Hi Wirawan,

I have fixed the DZP and ADZP Chromium basis sets. However there seems to be problem with the original Tellurium basis set. If I request the ADZP basis set for Te from the website you pointed to I get for some of the P functions:

 Te    P
2.71079969 0.5979879
1.23555585 0.3895349
0.47667416 0.0876738
Te P
0.19817871 1.0000000
Te P
0.07356233 1.0000000
Te P
0.03542847 000000000.Array

Most of it is OK, but the last P function is rubbish. Something has gone wrong on that website and hence the data we have is invalid (which is probably why the BSE throws an exception). So I will have to chase the original authors to get this fixed.

Nevertheless, thanks for reporting this problem. I provide more information when I have it.

Hi Wirawan,

Jorge has now fixed the Tellurium basis set issue on their website. So I have now corrected the basis set on the Basis Set Exchange in line with their data.

Best wishes, Huub
