       gausssum - parses the output of a Gaussian, GAMESS or HyperChem job


       gausssum [filename]


       gausssum parses the output file of a Gaussian, GAMESS or HyperChem computational chemistry
       job to extract useful information. It  uses  gnuplot(1)  to  graphically  display  of  the
       output. GaussSum can do the following: (Gau=Gaussian, GAM=GAMESS, Hyp=HyperChem)

       ·      display all lines containing a certain phrase (any)

       ·      follow the progress of the SCF convergence (Gau,GAM)

       ·      follow the progress of a geometry optimisation (Gau,GAM)

       ·      extract  molecular  orbital information, including contributions of groups of atoms
              to the molecular orbitals (Gau,GAM)

       ·      plot the density of states spectrum (and the partial density of states, in the case
              of groups of atoms) (Gau,GAM)

       ·      plot   the   crystal  orbital  overlap  population  (COOP)  spectrum,  which  gives
              information on the bonding/anti-bonding nature of an overlap  between  atoms/groups

       ·      extract  information  on  the UV-Vis transitions (Gau,Hyp), including the change in
              the charge density of groups of atoms (Gau)

       ·      plot the UV-Vis spectrum (Gau,Hyp) and the circular dichroism spectrum (Gau)

       ·      automate the creation of electron density difference maps, which visually show  the
              change in charge density associated with a given electronic transition (Gau)

       ·      extract information on IR (Gau,GAM) and Raman vibrations (Gau)

       ·      plot  the  IR  and  Raman  spectra, which may be scaled using general or individual
              scaling factors (Gau)
