Description: the Improved Dimer Method needs an educated guess of the decay path, which is extimated from the hardest vibration mode with imaginary frequency of the TS geometry (which is a planar NH3 molecule):


SYSTEM = Ammonia flipping
IBRION = 5
NSW = 1
ALGO = F
POTIM = 0.015
EDIFF = 1e-8
EDIFFG = -0.01
