The license conditions of Gaussian have caused some controversy, not least because the company Gaussian, Inc. has taken the unusual step of banning individuals (including the noble price winner and original author of the first version of the software, John Pople) and organizations that did not respect them. You will find the arguments of banned users here and the response of Gaussian, Inc. here.

Since we have no intention to get drawn into a legal dispute, access to Gaussian is restricted to people who have explicitly accepted the conditions above. If you want to use Gaussian on Brutus, simply send a note to Cluster Support stating that you accept these conditions.
