Product Description

Gaussian uses basic quantum mechanic electronic structure programs. This software is capable of handling proteins and large molecules using semi-empirical, ab initio molecular orbital (MO), density functional, and molecular mechanics calculations.

GaussView is the graphical interface used with Gaussian. It aids in the creation of input files, and assists in the interpretation of output within the software.
