If density is not requested, then the diagonal of the density matrix, i.e., the electron density on the atomic orbitals, will be printed.
When an excited state is calculated using the MECI method (see Multi-Electron Configuration Interaction method in Theory) the corresponding density matrix is constructed. Keywords that cause MECI to be used are C.I.=text, OPEN, EXCITED, and MICROS. When DENSITY is present, the excited state density matrix is printed. The excited state used in constructing the density matrix is indicated in the MECI output by a "+" sign next to the state number in the list of state energies (state energies are printed when keyword MECI is present) For transition dipoles or oscillator strength, also see the polarization values in the MECI output.
