Gaussian 09W

Gaussian 09W provides state-of-the-art capabilities for electronic structure modeling. All versions of Gaussian 09 contain every scientific/modeling feature, and none imposes any artificial limitations on calculations other than your computing resources and patience.

GaussView Version 5.0.9

GaussView is the most advanced and powerful graphical interface available for Gaussian. With GaussView, you can import or build the molecular structures that interest you, set up, launch, monitor and control Gaussian calculations, and retrieve and view the results, all without ever leaving the application. GaussView 5 includes many new features designed to make working with large systems of chemical interest convenient and straightforward. It also provides full support for all the new modeling methods and features in Gaussian 09W.
