MN-GFM is a module for incorporation of new density functionals into Gaussian 09, Revision C.01,

Various versions of MN-GFM have added the following new functionals to Gaussian 09:

  • PW6B95, PWB6K, SOGGA, SOGGA11, SOGGA11-X, N12, N12-SX, M08-HX, M08-SO, M11, M11-L, MN12-L, MN12-SX, PBEsol, WC06, RPBE, revPBE, B97-3, B86, GAM, MN15-L, MN15, OreLYP, MGGA_MS0, MGGA_MS1, MGGA_MS2, MGGA_MS2h, revM06-L, revM06, revM11, and M06-SX.
  • Details of the functionals are given on our density functional webpage.

    Version history

    The older versions of MN-GFM (such as versions 6.10, 6.9, 6.8, etc.) specifying which functionals are installed in each version are described in the MN-GFM Users' Manual.

    Availability and Distribution

    MN-GFM is a locally modified version of the Gaussian 09 code. Our license does not permit distribution of modified Gaussian 09 code.

    Source code

    Gaussian 09 code is available from Gaussian, Inc.. Because of licensing restrictions, MN-GFM is only available for internal use; however, external users may find MFM to be useful. MFM is free and unlicensed.
