VAMP Notes

VAMP is a semi-empirical molecular orbital program from Oxford Molecular. Like MOPAC It incorporates the common semi-empirical Hamiltonians, AM1 and PM3.

Example data files are in /usr/bigdisk/om/VAMP/TESTS. The file format is very similar to MOPAC so the conversion programs for MOPAC can also be used for VAMP.

Comprehensive help files are now available, but are only accessible from the SGTL.

To run the program, type:

rvamp filename

VAMP only runs on fcal, gcal, jcal, kcal, lcal, mcal, ncal
