-During a DS-AFIR calculation, AFIR program found 5 Equilibrium Structures (EQ0, EQ1, EQ2, EQ3, EQ4, where EQ4 and EQ0 are reactant and product respectively) and 2 Transition states ,TS0 (which connects EQ0 with EQ1) and TS1 which connects EQ2 with EQ3). But, we missed the other two TSs between EQ4- EQ3 and between EQ2-EQ1.
Which option would be, in principle, more effective to find a path? To do RePATH (in the same folder where DS-AFIR was performed) or to calculate new DS-AFIRs to find the missing TSs from the each pair of EQ structures?
Also, another thing that caught our attention in this particular DS-AFIR output was the highlighted with a # 'hashtag' word #RIDGE-POINT (we could find this in the manual) that appears instead of "#STEP N " in the main output XXX.log . This word seems to mark the final structure in the PATH LUP (after the structure marked with that word, the next line is this: "DS-AFIR COMPLETED, LUP-PATH OPTIMIZATION CARRIED OUT" ). We are wondering how we find the TS rather than the "ridge point"?
