# Keywords¶

In this section we provide a complete list of allowed keywords for the input file used in block2main with a short description for each keyword.

## Global Settings¶

# / !

If a line starts with ‘!’ or ‘#’, the line will be ignored.

outputlevel

Optional. Followed by one integer. 0 = Silent. 1 = Print information for each sweep. 2 = Print information for iteration at each site (default). 3 = Print information for each Davidson/CG iteration.

orbitals

Required for most normal cases. Not required if reloading MPO or when orbital_rotation is the calculation type, or when model is given. Followed by the file name for the orbital definition and integrals, in FCIDUMP format or hdf5 format (used only in libdmet). Only nonspinadapted is supported for orbitals with hdf5 format .

integral_tol

Optional. The integral values smaller than integral_tol will be discarded. Default is 1E-12 (for integral with hdf5 format) or 0 (for integral with FCIDUMP format).

model

Optional. Can be used to perform calculations for some simple model Hamiltonian and the orbitals keyword can be skipped. For example, model hubbard 16 1 2 will calculate ground state for 1-dimensional non-periodic Hubbard model with 16 sites and nearest-neighbor interaction, t = 1 and U = 2. model hubbard_periodic 16 1 2 will do the calculation for the periodic Hubbard model. model hubbard_kspace 16 1 2 will do the calculation for the periodic Hubbard model in the momentum space. One can then use this together with k_symmetry to utilize the translational symmetry or not use it if the keyword k_symmetry is not given. model hubbard 16 1 2 per-site will print the energy for each site.

prefix

Optional. Path to scratch folder. Default is ./nodex/.

num_thrds

Optional. Followed by an integer for the number of OpenMP threads to use. Default is 28 (if there is no hf_occ integral in the input file) or 1 (to be compatible with StackBlock when there is hf_occ integral in the input file). Note that the environment variable OMP_NUM_THREADS is ignored.

mkl_thrds

Optional. Followed by an integer for the number of OpenMP threads to use for the MKL library. Default is 1.

mem

Optional. Followed by an integer and a letter as the unit (g or G). Stack memory for doubles. Default is 2 GB. Note that the code may use a large amount of memory via dynamic allocation, which is not controlled by this number.

intmem

Optional. Followed by an integer and a letter as the unit (g or G). Stack memory for integers. Default is 10% of mem.

mem_ratio

Optional. Followed by a float number (0.0 ~ 1.0). The ratio of main stack memory. Default is 0.4.

min_mpo_mem

Optional. Followed by auto, True, or False. If True, MPO building and simplification will cost much less memory. But the computational cost will be higher due to IO cost. Default is auto, which is True if number of orbitals is >= 80.

qc_mpo_type

Optional. Followed by auto (default), conventional, nc, or cn. The Hamiltonian MPO formalism type. The default is to use Conventional for non-big-site, and NC for big-site. Conventional DMRG is overall 50% faster than NC, but the cost of the middle site is 2 times higher than NC. If the memory is limited and min_mpo_mem is used, one should set NC MPO type to make memory cost more uniform.

cached_contraction

Optional. Followed by an integer 0 or 1 (default). If 1, cached contraction is used for improving performance.

Optional. If given, the code will work in the non-spin-adapted SZ mode. Otherwise, it will work in the spin-adapted SU2 mode.

k_symmetry

Optional. If given, the code will work in the non-spin-adapted or spin-adapted mode with additionally the K symmetry. Requiring the code to be built with -DUSE_KSYMM.

use_complex

Optional. If given, the code will work in the complex number mode, where the integral, MPO and MPS contain all complex numbers. FCIDUMP with real or complex integral can be accepted in this mode. Requiring the code to be built with -DUSE_COMPLEX. Conflict with use_hybrid_complex (checked).

use_hybrid_complex

Optional. If given, the code will work in the hybrid complex number mode, where the MPO is split into real and complex sub-MPOs. MPS rotation matrix are real matrices but center site tensor is complex. FCIDUMP with real or complex integral can be accepted in this mode. Requiring the code to be built with -DUSE_COMPLEX. Conflict with use_complex (checked).

use_general_spin

Optional. If given, the code will work in (fermionic) spin orbital (rather than spatial orbital). FCIDUMP will be intepreted as integrals between spin orbitals. If the FCIDUMP is actually the normal FCIDUMP for spatial orbitals, the extra keyword trans_integral_to_spin_orbital is required to make it work with general spin. Requiring the code to be built with -DUSE_SG. Currently cannot be used together with k_symmetry.

single_prec

Optional. If given, the code will work in single precision (float) rather than double precision (double).

integral_rescale

Optional. auto (default) or none or floating point number. If auto and the calculation is done with single precision, the average diagonal of the one-electron integral will be moved to the energy constant. Ideally, with single precision, we want the energy constant to be close to the final dmrg energy. If auto and the calculation is done with double precision, nothing will happen. If none, nothing will happen. If the value of integral_rescale is a number, the energy constant will be adjust to the given number by shifting the average diagonal of the one-electron integral. This should only be used when the particle number of the calculation is a constant (namely, nelec contains only one number).

check_dav_tol

restart_dir

Optional. Followed by directory name. If restart_dir is given, after each sweep, the MPS will be backed up in the given directory.

restart_dir_per_sweep

Optional. Followed by directory name. If restart_dir_per_sweep is given, after each sweep, the MPS will be backed up in the given directory name followed by the sweep index as the name suffix. This will save MPSs generated from all sweeps.

So when it is a real float value, we will do imaginary time evolution of the MPS (namely, optimizing to ground state or finite-temperature state). When it is a pure imaginary value, we will do real time evolution of the MPS (namely, solving the time dependent Schrodinger equation).

If given, artificial rotation in the logarithm of the rotation matrix can be avoid, by make the rotation matrix quasi-positive-definite, with “quasi” in the sense that the rotation matrix is not Hermitian. This keyword can only be used together with restart_onepdm or onepdm. And the keyword nat_orbs must also exist.

trans_mps_to_sz

Optional keyword with no associated value. If given, the MPS will be transformed to non-spin-adapted before being saved. This keyword can only be used together with restart_copy_mps or copy_mps.

trans_mps_to_complex

Optional keyword with no associated value. If given, the MPS will be transformed to complex wavefunction with real rotation matrix before being saved. This keyword can only be used together with restart_copy_mps or copy_mps, and optionally with split_states. This keyword is conflict with other trans\_mps\_* keywords. To load this MPS in the subsequent calculations, the keyword complex_mps must be used.

split_states

Optional keyword with no associated value. If given, the state averaged MPS will be split into individual MPSs. This keyword can only be used together with restart_copy_mps or copy_mps, and optionally with trans_mps_to_complex. This keyword is conflict with other trans\_mps\_* keywords. The individual MPS will be the tag given by the keyword restart_copy_mps or copy_mps with -<n> appended, where n is the root index counting from zero.

resolve_twosz

Optional. Followed by an integer, which is two times the projected spin. The transformed SZ MPS will have the specified projected spin. If the keyword resolve_twosz is not given, an MPS with ensemble of all possible projected spins will be produced (which is often not very useful). This keyword can only be used together with restart_copy_mps or copy_mps. And the keyword trans_mps_to_sz must also exist.

normalize_mps

Optional keyword with no associated value. If given, the transformed SZ MPS will be normalized. This keyword can only be used together with restart_copy_mps or copy_mps. And the keyword trans_mps_to_sz must also exist.

big_site

Optional. Followed by a string for the implementation of the big site. Possible implementations are folding, fock (only with nonspinadapted), csf (only without nonspinadapted). This keyword can only be used in dynamic correlation calculations. If this keyword is not given, the dynamic correlation calculation will be performed with normal MPS with no big sites.

expt_algo_type

Optional. Followed by a string auto, fast, or lowmem. Default is auto. This keyword can only be used with density matrix or transition density matrix calculations. The default is auto. lowmem uses less memory, but the complexity can be higher.

simple_parallel

Optional. Followed by an empty string (same as ij) or ij or kl. When this keyword is not given, the conventional parallel rule for QC-DMRG will be used. Otherwise, the simple parallel scheme based on distributing integral according to ij or kl indices is used. When qc_mpo_type is auto, this simple scheme will also change the center for middle transformation to reduce the MPO bond dimension. The simple parallel scheme may be good for saving per-processor MPO memory cost for large scale parallelized DMRG.

condense_mpo

Optional. Followed by an integer (must be a power of 2, default is 1). When condense_mpo is not 1, block2 will merge every two adjacent MPO sites into a larger site (after the MPO is created), repeating log(condense_mpo) times, until the total number of sites is n_sites / condense_mpo. Not working with SU2 symmetry. When condense_mpo 2 is used with general spin, the calculation will be done with two spin orbitals as a site rather than one spin orbital. Not working with twopdm related keywords. Require the keyword simple_parallel for the parallelization of the condensed MPO.

one_body_parallel_rule

Optional keyword with no associated value. If given, the more efficient parallelization rule will be used to distribute the MPO. This rule only works when the two-body term is zero or purely local. Real space Huabbard model is one of the case. For such Hamiltonian, the default (quantum chemistry) parallelization rule can still work, but may have no improvements with multiple processors. If this keyword is used with non-trivial two-body term, runtime error may happen.

complex_mps

Optional keyword with no associated value. If given, complex expectation values will be computed for MPS with complex wavefunction tensor and real rotation matrices (in non-complex mode).

skip_inact_ext_sites

Optional keyword with no associated value. If given, for uncontracted dynamic correlation calculations, the sweeps will skip inactive and external sites, so that the efficiency can be higher and the accuracy is not affected. This should only be used with uncontracted dynamic correlation keywords (checked) without any big sites. Normally it is useful only for dynamic correlation with singles (such as mrcis).

full_integral

Optional keyword with no associated value. If not given, and it is a dynamic correlation with singles (namely, with keywords nevpt2s, mrcis, mrrept2s, nevpt2-i, nevpt2-r, mrrept2-i, or mrrept2-r), the two-electron integral elements with more than two virtual indices will be set to zero. This should save some MPO contruction time, without affecting the sweep time cost and accuracy. If this keyword is given, the full integral elements will be used for constructing MPO.

## Uncontracted Dynamic Correlation¶

There can only be at most one dynamic correlation keyword (checked). Any of the following keyword must be followed by 2 integers (representing number of orbitals in the active space and number of electrons in the active space), or 3 integers (representing number of orbitals in the inactive, active, and external space, respectively).

## Schedule¶

onedot

Using the one-site DMRG algorithm. onedot will be implicitly used if you restart from a onedot mps (can be obtained from previous run with twodot_to_onedot).

twodot

Default. Using the two-site DMRG algorithm.

twodot_to_onedot

Followed by a single number to indicate the sweep iteration when to switch from the two-site DMRG algorithm to the two-site DMRG algorithm. The sweep iteration is counted from zero.

schedule

Optional. Followed by the word default or a multi-line DMRG schedule with the last line being end. If not given, the defualt schedule will be used. Between the keyword schedule and end each line needs to have four values. They are corresponding to starting sweep iteration (counting from zero), MPS bond dimension, tolerance for the Davidson iteration, and noise, respectively. Starting sweep iteration is the sweep iteration in which the given parameters in the line should take effect. For each line, alternatively, one can provide n_sites - 1 values for the MPS bond dimension, where the ith number represents the right virtual bond dimension for the MPS tensor at site i. If this is the case, the site-dependent MPS bond dimension truncation will be used.

store_wfn_spectra

Optional with no associated value. If given, the singular values at each left-right partition during the last sweep will be stored as sweep_wfn_spectra.npy after convergence. Only works with DMRG type calculation. The stored array is a numpy array of 1 dimensional numpy array. The inner arrays normally do not have all the same length. For spin-adapted, each singular values correspond to a multiplet. So for non-singlet, the wavefunction spectra have different interpretation between SU2 and SZ.

extrapolation

Optional. Should only be used for standard DMRG calculation with the reverse schedule. Will print the extrapolated energy and generate the energy extrapolation plot (saved as a figure).

maxiter

Optional. Followed by an integer. Maximum number of sweep iterations. Default is 1.

lowmem_noise

Optional. If given, the noise step will require less memory but potentially worse openmp load-balancing.

dm_noise

svd_cutoff

Optional. Followed by a small float number. Cutoff of singular values used in parallel over sites. Default is 1E-12.

svd_eps

Optional. Followed by a small float number. Accuracy of SVD for connection sites used in parallel over sites. Default is 1E-4.

trunc_type

Optional. Can be physical (default) or reduced, where reduced re-weight eigenvalues by their multiplicities (only useful in the SU2 mode).

decomp_type

Optional. Can be density_matrix (default) or svd, where svd may be less numerical stable and not working with nroots > 1.

real_density_matrix

Optional. Only have effects in the complex mode and when decomp_type is density_matrix. If given, the imaginary part of the density matrix will be discarded before diagonalization. This means that all rotation matrices will be orthogonal rather than unitary, although they will be stored as complex matrices. For complex mode DMRG with more than one roots, this keyword has to be used (not checked).

davidson_max_iter

Optional. Maximal number of iterations in Davidson. Default is 5000. If this number is reached but convergence is not achieved, the calculation will abort.

davidson_soft_max_iter

Optional. Maximal number of iterations in Davidson. Default is -1. If this number is reached but convergence is not achieved, the calculation will continue as if the convergence is achieved. If this numebr is -1, or larger than or equal to davidson_max_iter, this keyword has no effect and davidson_max_iter is used instead.

n_sub_sweeps

Optional. Number of sweeps for each time step. Defualt is 2. This keyword only has effect when used with delta_t and when te_type is rk4.

## System Definition¶

nelec

Optional. Followed by one or more integrers. Number of electrons in the target wavefunction. If not given, the value from FCIDUMP is used (and the keyword orbtials must be given).

spin

Optional. Followed by one or more integrers. Two times the total spin of the target wavefunction in spin-adapted calculation. Or Two times the projected spin (number of alpha electrons minus number of beta electrons) of the target wavefunction in non-spin-adapted calculation. If not given, the value from FCIDUMP is used. If FCIDUMP is not given, 0 is used.

irrep

Optional. Followed by one or more integrers. Point group irreducible representation of the target wavefunction. If not given, the value from FCIDUMP is used. If FCIDUMP is not given, 1 is used. MOLPRO notation is used, where 1 always means the trivial irreducible representation.

sym

Optional. Followed by a lowercase string for the (Abelian) point group name. Default is d2h. If the real point group is c1 or c2, setting sym d2h will also work.

k_irrep

Optional. Followed by one or more integrers. LZ / K irreducible representation number of the target wavefunction. If not given, the value from FCIDUMP is used. If FCIDUMP is not given, 0 is used.

k_mod

nroots

Optional. Followed by one integer. Number of roots. Default is 1. For nroots > 1, oh or restart_oh will calculate the expectation of Hamiltonian on every state. tran_oh or restart_tran_oh will calculate the expectation of Hamiltonian on every possible pair of states as bra and ket states. The parameters for the quantum number of the MPS, namely spin, isym and nelec can also take multiple numbers. This can also be combined with nroots > 1, which will then enable transition density matrix between MPS with different quantum numbers to be calculated (in a single run). This kind of calulation usually needs a larger nroots than the nroots actually needed, otherwise, some excited states with different quantum number from the ground-state may be missing. To save time, one may first do a calculation with larger nroots and small bond dimensions, and then do fullrestart and change nroots to a smaller value. Then only the lowest nroots MPSs will be restarted.

weights

Optional. Followed by a list of fractional numbers. The weights of each state for the state average calculation. If not given, equal weight will be used for all states.

mps_tags

Optional. Followed by a single string or a list of strings. The MPS in scratch directory with the specific tag/tags will be loaded for restart (for statespecific, restart_onepdm, etc.). The default MPS tag for input/output is KET.

Optional. Followed by a string. The tag for the constant (right hand side) MPS for compression. The tag of the output MPS in compression is set using mps_tags.

proj_mps_tags

Optional. Followed by a single string or a list of strings. The tag for the MPSs to be projected out during DMRG. Must be used together with proj_weights. The projection will be done by changing Hamiltonian from $$\hat{H}$$ to $$\hat{H} + \sum_i w_i |\phi_i\rangle \langle \phi_i|$$ (the level shift approach), where $$|\phi_i\rangle$$ are the MPSs to be projected out. $$w_i$$ are the weights.

proj_weights

Optional. Followed by a single float number or a list of float numbers. Can be used together with proj_mps_tags. The number of float numbers in this keyword must be equal to the length of proj_mps_tags. Normally, the weights are positive and they should be larger than the energy gap. If the weight is too small, you will get unphyiscal eigenvalues as Ei + wi, where Ei is the energy of the MPSs to be projected out. If statespecific keyword is in the input, it will change the projection method from the orthogonalization method $$\hat{H} - \sum_i |\phi_i\rangle \langle \phi_i|$$ to the level shift approach $$\hat{H} + \sum_i w_i |\phi_i\rangle \langle \phi_i|$$.

symmetrize_ints

Optional. Followed by a small float number. Setting the largest allowed value for the integral element that violates the point group or K symmetry. Default is 1E-10. The symmetry-breaking integral elements will be discarded in the calculation anyway. Setting this keyword will only control whether the calculation can be performed or an error will be generated.

occ

Optional. Followed by a list of float numbers between 0 and 2 for spatial orbital occupation numbers, or a list of float numbers between 0 and 1 for spin orbital occupation numbers, or a list of float numbers between 0 and 1 for the probability for each of four states at each site (experimental). This keyword should only be used together with warmup occ.

bias

Optional. Followed by a non-negative float number. If not 1.0, sets an power based bias to occ.

cbias

Optional. Followed by a non-negative float number. If not 0.0, sets a constant shift towards the equal-possibility occ. cbias is normally useful for shifting integral occ, while bias only shifts fractional occ.

init_mps_center

Optional. Followed by a site index (counting from zero). Default is zero. This is the canonical center for the initial guess MPS.

full_fci_space

Optional, not useful for general user. If full_fci_space keyword is in the input (with no associated value), the full fci space is used (including block quantum numbers outside the space of the wavefunction target quantum number).

trans_mps_info

Optional, experimental. If trans_mps_info keyword is in the input (with no associated value), the MPSInfo will be initialized using SZ quantum numbers if in SU2 mode, or using SU2 quantum numbers if in SZ mode. A transformation of MPSInfo is then performed between SZ and SU2 quantum numbers. MultiMPSInfo cannot be supported with this keyword.

random_mps_init

Optional. If given, the initial guess for the output MPS in compression will be random initialized in the way set by the warmup keyword. Otherwise, the constant right hand side MPS will be copied as the the initial guess for the output MPS.
