The software can be downloaded from the following website: http://web.mit.edu/fbml/cmr/griffin-group/SPINEVOLUTION/index.htm. It can also be helpful to have some variant of plotting/visualization software installed. Grace and MATLAB are recommended. To install Grace: on Mac OSX -- download the binary from http://hpc.sourceforge.net/; on Windows -- install via cygwin (http://www.cygwin.com); on Linux -- compile from the source (http://plasma-gate.weizmann.ac.il/Grace) or install binary package grace or xmgrace for your distribution of choice.
Workshop on ab initio calculations - softwareThere is a piece of freeware that could be useful for viewing the Gaussian input and output files, called Molden. It is available for a variety of platforms. For instructions on downloading and installing it, see: http://www.cmbi.ru.nl/molden/howtoget.html
