Gaussian is a software package used for calculating molecular electronic structure and properties. Gaussian is used by chemists, chemical engineers, biochemists and physicists for research in established and emerging areas of chemical interest. This package includes a wide range of ab initio and semi-empirical methods for energy, gradient, frequency and property calculations.
Licensing: Gaussian is available under a site license for LSU.
GaussView 06 is the latest in the Gaussian series of electronic structure programs. GaussView 06 is used by chemists, chemical engineers, biochemists, physicists and others for research in established and emerging areas of chemical interest.
GaussView 06 makes using Gaussian simple and straightforward by sketching in molecules using its advanced 3D Structure Builder, or loading in molecules from standard files. Also, it sets up and submits Gaussian jobs right from the interface, and monitors their progress as they run. It examines calculation results graphically via state-of-the-art visualization features: displays molecular orbitals and other surfaces, view spectra, animates normal modes, geometry optimizations and reaction paths.
Licensing: Gaussian is available under a site license for LSU.
