Parameters:
  • name (string) –

    'ccsd' || etc.

    First argument, usually unlabeled. Indicates the computational method to be applied to the system.

  • properties (array of strings) –

    \(\Rightarrow\) [] \(\Leftarrow\) || ['rotation', 'polarizability', 'oscillator_strength', 'roa'] || etc.

    Indicates which properties should be computed. Defaults to dipole and quadrupole.

  • molecule (molecule) –

    h2o || etc.

    The target molecule, if not the last molecule defined.
