Calculation and Visualization Features of AIMAll (Version 17.01.25)
Note: Multiprocessor calculation features and all visualization-related features, such as writing and displaying molecular graphs, require an AIMAll Professional license for wavefunctions with more than 12 atoms or more than 400 primitive basis functions. Running AIMQB GUI in "batch mode" with more than 3 wavefunctions also requires an AIMAll Professional license.
