"Introduction to Gaussian: Theory and Practice." will be presented by
representatives of Gaussian, Inc.
The workshops will cover the full range of methods available in the
Gaussian 98 package with emphasis on new methods and features which make
Gaussian 98 applicable to an ever-widening spectrum of research
The workshop is structured to provide an introduction to electronic
structure theory as well as a hands-on review for researchers active in
the field. The workshop is open to researchers at all levels of academic,
government and industrial research.
Preliminary Topic List:
Independent Particle Methods
Model Chemistries: A Framework for Understanding Electronic
Structure Theory Results
MCSCF Methods and Applications
Geometry Optimization Techniques
Electron Correlation Methods
Density Functional Theory Methods
Methods for Excited Electronic States
Interpretation of Gaussian Results
Prediction of Molecular Properties
Solvent Effects via Electronic Structure Methods
Estimating Resource Requirements
There will be hands-on sessions each day between the morning and afternoon
lectures. Additional hands-on sessions will be available until the
building closes. Workshop participants will be provided with use of a
workstation to complete exercises, experiment and/or conduct short research
The GaussView user interface will be used to perform visualization of results
and to facilitate calculation setup. Each workshop participant will also
be provided a copy of the lecture notes, a copy of Exploring Chemistry with
Electronic Structure Methods, 2nd Edition, and a Gaussian 98 User's
