Gaussian 09 is the latest version of the Gaussian® series of electronic structure programs, used by chemists, chemical engineers, biochemists, physicists and other scientists worldwide. Starting from the fundamental laws of quantum mechanics, Gaussian 09 predicts the energies, molecular structures, vibrational frequencies and molecular properties of molecules and reactions in a wide variety of chemical environments. Gaussian 09's models can be applied to both stable species and compounds which are difficult or impossible to observe experimentally (e.g., short-lived intermediates and transition structures).

Gaussian 09 provides the most advanced modeling capabilities available today, and it includes many new features and enhancements which significantly expand the range of problems and systems which can be studied. With Gaussian 09, you can model larger systems and more complex problems than ever before, even on modest computer hardware.

Maple is a general-purpose commercial mathematics software package. It was first developed in 1980 by the Symbolic Computation Group at the University of Waterloo in Waterloo, Ontario, Canada.

Since 1988, it has been developed and sold commercially by Waterloo Maple Inc. (also known as Maplesoft), a Canadian company also based in Waterloo, Ontario. The current version is Maple 15 which was released in April 2011. Its main competitor is Mathematica.

Mathematica is a computer program used widely in scientific, engineering and mathematical fields. It is mainly known as a computer algebra system, but it has various other features for technical computing. It was originally conceived by Stephen Wolfram and developed by a team of mathematicians and programmers that he assembled and led. It is developed by Wolfram Research of Champaign, Illinois.

Attention graduating seniors!

Many students will graduate and start their careers utilizing the skills they have learned during their time on campus. Since Mathematica is used at Fortune 500 companies and government research labs throughout the world, having access to Mathematica on campus has helped prepare them to take on professional challenges that require these skills.

So they can take Mathematica with them to their first job, Wolfram offers recent graduates the chance to upgrade from Mathematica for Students to the professional version of Mathematica — with one year of Premier Service included — at an 80% discount off of the commercial list price.

Students who are interested can email or order by phone at 1-800-WOLFRAM (965-3726).

Pharos is a network printing system that charges users when printing to a college-owned copier or printer. When printing is done, the Pharos system debits the user's COW Card or appropriate budget account for the cost of a print job.

Pharos Notify is an optional component that alerts the user when a job has successfully printed.
