The command `nmrshld` invokes the calculation of NMR chemical shielding tensors at the level of (local) density-fitted HF (GIAO-DF-HF) or local density-fitted MP2 (GIAO-DF-LMP2).
Note: Chemical shieldings at the level of MP2 are only implemented for DF-LMP2.

For the calculation of the chemical shieldling tensor a preceding DF-HF, respectively, DF-LMP2 calculation is required. Symmetry has to be set to `nosym`. For the GIAO-DF-HF code one can use canonical orbitals from the DF-HF run or localized orbitals (recommended).

Example:

The shielding calculation returns the chemical shielding tensors and a summary of the chemical shifts (i.e. the arithmetic mean of the diagonal elements) for each nucleus in the order they were specified in the geometry input. The directive `comp` additionally prints the diamagnetic and paramagnetic contributions (for further information see R. Ditchfield, Mol. Phys. 27(4), 789 (1974)) for all shielding tensors.

Additionally, the calculation of magnetizabilities and rotational tensors has been implemented: the command `magprop` invokes the calculation of magnetizabilities and chemical shielding tensors. The directive `comp` can be specified. The command `magnetiz` invokes a pure magnetizability calculation. Note that a pure magnetizability calculation takes nearly as long as a chemical shielding calculation and hence does not provide any advantage in comparison to `magprop`. See also the input examples `gly1_mag.com` and `h2o_mag.com`.

If one is interested in the calculation of rotational tensors the molecule has to be aligned in the principal axis system with the command `orient,mass`. Otherwise, the results are meaningless.
