The {\sass} code%~\cite{p:relaxse}
does a fully-decontracted Multirefrence Configuration
Interaction (MRCI) calculation using one of the following methods
\begin{itemize}
\item {\bf SAS+S~:} single excitations on all determinants of a reference
space built as in the SAS+S method~\cite{p:SASS}, that is
\begin{itemize}
\item a selected set of determinants (included into a formal Complete
Active Space), denoted as {\sc ref0},
\item all CAS$\,\rightarrow\,$CAS single excitations from all {\sc ref0} determinants,
\item all LIGO$\,\rightarrow\,$CAS single excitations from all {\sc ref0} determinants,
\item all CAS$\,\rightarrow\,$LIGV single excitations from all {\sc ref0}
determinants,
\item all LIGO$\,\rightarrow\,$LIGV single excitations from all {\sc ref0} determinants,
\end{itemize}
\item {\bf MRSCI~:} single excitations on all determinants of a selected reference space
(included into a formal Complete Active Space);
\item {\bf MRSDCI~:} single and double excitations on aall determinants of selected reference space
(included into a formal Complete Active Space);
\item {\bf CAS+S~:} single excitations on all determinants of a Complete
Active Space;
\item {\bf CAS+SD~:} single and double excitations on all determinants of a
Complete Active Space;

Dedicated Configuration Interaction space~\cite{DDCI1992,DDCI1995,DDCI1997}, on all determinants of a
Complete Active Space.

The \program{\sass} code uses a direct algorithm in order to treat large
numbers of determinants (typically up to $10^8$, $10^9$), i.e. each matrix
element is recomputed on-the-fly.
The determinants are divided in 9 blocks, denoted
$D_{\text{Nel}}^{\text{Nexc}}$, where \verb|Nel| is the number of additional
electrons in the active part with respect to the {\sc Ref0} configurations,
and \verb|Nexc| is the number of additional excitations outside of the active
space. The \program{\sass} code has both MPI and OpenMP parallelization
driven both by integral and determinant blocks. The MPI parallelisation is
done on the pair integral-kind~/~determinant-block. When the determinant
blocks are very large, it is possible to divide the calculation into smaller
MPI parts by batching the determinants. However, the gain is not systematic as
the integrals are read from disk for each MPI process and the overhead can be
large.
Within each MPI process an OpenMP parallelisation is done on the outer particle or
hole loop.
For an optimal use of the code the user should adjust the number of MPI
precesses, OpenMP threads and the size of the batches according to her/his
problem and computer system. In order to guide the user for such choices we provide below
performance testing for the most typical cases. These data are taken from ref.~\cite{p:relaxse}.
