# ANTIRES

From Vaspwiki

**ANTIRES** = 0 | 1 | 2

Default: **ANTIRES** = 0

Description: The flag **ANTIRES** determines whether the Tamm-Dancoff approximation
is used or not.

**ANTIRES**=0 Tamm-Dancoff approximation (TDA)**ANTIRES**=1 yields exact results at ω=0 at roughly the same cost as TDA**ANTIRES**=2 beyond Tamm-Dancoff, coupling between positive and negative frequencies

VASP uses the procedures outlined in reference ^{[1]} to include contributions
beyond Tamm-Dancoff. Beyond TDA calculations increase the computational time and memory requirements by typically a factor of
2.
