[molpro-user] Plotting of the radial distribution of the wavefunction

Dear Robert,

When I looked at this issue recently I couldn't find any visualization
package that provided this. Moreover, trying to do the integration with the
commonly provided Cartesian grid usually provides lousy results.

I ended up writing my own code which can prepare the radial density,
angular density, or any other cut (for an example see PCCP 2014,*16*,
13287). Unfortunately, the code is not in a state where it could be
immediately used by someone else.

As an alternative, one could also modify molden to print the value of the
density (or MO) on a specific (x,y,z) and then do the integration a
posteriori. The only file in molden that needs to be played with is
grdcal.f .

I hope this helps.

Best regards,
