Improved force reversed method

Post by mmg016 » Sun Jun 03, 2018 10:15 pm

Dear all,

I am increasingly starting to read in recent papers that the "Improved force reversed method" is being used to locate the transition state. For example, some of the recent papers which say they use this method are:

1. https://www.sciencedirect.com/science/a ... 5517306985
2. http://pubs.rsc.org/en/content/articlel ... ivAbstract

They all reference to this paper: http://tc.dicp.ac.cn/paper/63.pdf

Does anybody have any idea on how this is implemented in VASP? Any views on its comparison to the traditional NEB, CI-NEB and the DIMER methods?

Best regards,
