Comment on “Accurate Relativistic Dirac—Fock and MBPT Calculations on Argon with Basis sets of Contracted Gaussian Functions” by Y. Ishikawa and R. C. Binning Jr

Much of the ls correlation comes from terms involving p functions, so that the inner p basis functions are playing a dual rôle. If they are contracted to describe the 2p orbital, the ls correlation will be adversely affected. Have you tried contracting the p functions for the 2p, and then adding an extra tight p function for ls correlation, or, contracting the innermost 3 or 4p functions to 2 functions, one for the 2p orbital, and one for is correlation (by maximizing the radial overlap, for example).
