Single-reference coupled-cluster methods corresponding to various approximate forms of the cluster operator including up to four-electron operators are applied to the simple H4 model system with the aim of numerically studying the attainability and properties of multiple solutions of the systems of nonlinear equations for the cluster amplitudes. Various solutions have been obtained for the excited states 21 A1 and 51 A1. It is documented that there exist nonphysical nonstandard solutions that yield energies very close to the physical ones. A simple way of selecting the physically meaningful solutions is proposed. It is demonstrated that the attainability of nonstandard solutions describing a state of H4 within the framework of a given SE-CC method strongly depends on the cluster structure of that state. © 1994 John Wiley & Sons, Inc.
