About the Authors

  • JOHN BARKER wrote or contributed to most of the codes. The original set of codes was based on his 1983 paper and subsequent developments.1-6

    LAM NGUYEN installed a method for using quantum eigenvalues for hindered internal rotations, wrote a code for computing the effective mass of large amplitude motions, and helped in developing codes for non-separable vibrations,6 and semi-classical transition state theory (SCTST).7 In addition, he and John Stanton are responsible for the code TS.

    JOHN STANTON was a key participant in implementing semi-classical transition state theory 7 and vibrational anharmonicities in his quantum chemistry code CFOUR.8 He and Lam Nguyen also are responsible for the code TS.

    CHIARA AIETA, FABIO GABAS, and MICHELE CEOTTO (Università degli Studi di Milano) developed paradensum, a parallelized code for computing sums and densities of states for fully coupled vibrational models.9

    DHILIP KUMAR wrote several scripts for automatically using output files from electronic structure programs to build input/output files.

    COLLIN LI wrote much of the code for program bdens.

    LARRY LOHR contributed to the development of hindered rotor subroutines.

    ANDREA MARANZANA (University of Turin) contributed codes for automatically generating input files for the MultiWell Suite from output files produced in quantum chemical calculations.

    NICK ORTIZ (as an undergraduate student) wrote most of the code for MOMINERT.

    JACK PRESES (Brookhaven Nat'l Lab.) added several helpful features.

    JOHN SIMMIE (Galway, Ireland) is helping to maintain and extend the MultiWell Thermodynamics Database.

    JASON SONK wrote most of the code for ktools and has contributed to other codes as well.

    PHIL STIMAC implemented 1-dimensional quantum tunneling via an unsymmetrical Eckart barrier in the multiwell master equation code.
