Abstract The theoretical description of molecular dynamics proceeds from the specification of an appropriate Born–Oppenheimer potential energy surface (PES) or surfaces. For many chemical systems, such surfaces are incorporated within a repository of standardized FORTRAN codes known as POTLIB. The present work describes a Mathematica package that uses a MathLink interface to interactively call POTLIB subroutines from within a Mathematica session. This allows for rapid prototyping and deployment of new... Title of program: POTLIB2Math Catalogue Id: AEQJ_v1_0 Nature of problem POTLIB [1, 2] is a collection of FORTRAN subprograms that calculate potential energy surfaces and gradients for various chemical systems as a function of molecular geometry. The objective of this work is to develop an interface that allows users to interactively execute POTLIB subprograms from within a Mathematica session. Versions of this program held in the CPC repository in Mendeley Data AEQJ_v1_0; POTLIB2Math; 10.1016/j.cpc.2013.08.011 This program has been imported from the CPC Program Library held at Queen's University Belfast (1969-2019)
