This variable controls the number of processors used for the ‘other’ parallelization mode, that is CalculatioMode dependent. For CalculationMode = casida, it means parallelization in electron-hole pairs.
The special value auto, the default, lets Octopus decide how many processors will be assigned for this strategy. To disable parallelization in Other, you can use ParOther = no (or set the number of processors to 1).
The total number of processors required is the multiplication
of the processors assigned to each parallelization strategy.
The number of processors is assigned automatically.
This parallelization strategy is not used.
