GAMGI (General Atomistic Modelling Graphic Interface) is a program to build, view, and analyze atomic strucures such as molecules, crystals, glasses, liquids, etc. It aims to be useful for: the scientific community working in Atomistic Modelling that needs a graphic interface to build input data and to view and analyse output data, calculated with Ab-Initio and Molecular Mechanics programs; the scientific community at large studying chemistry, physics, materials science, geology, etc., that needs a graphic interface to view and analyse atomic structural information and to prepare images for presentations in classes and seminars; teaching chemistry and physics in secondary schools and universities; science promotion in schools, exhibitions and science museums.
Release Notes: This release implements Orbital->Modify, which is now working fine for single orbitals (lists of orbitals should be supported in the next release). It adds automatic name change in Atom->Modify and Orbital->Modify. It simplifies the way Laguerre polynomials and Legendre functions are calculated to get Hydrogen-based atomic orbitals.
