Nature of problem:
POTLIB [1, 2] is a collection of FORTRAN subprograms that calculate potential energy surfaces and gradients for various chemical systems as a function of molecular geometry. The objective of this work is to develop an interface that allows users to interactively execute POTLIB subprograms from within a Mathematica session.

Solution method:
POTLIB2Math is a fully-documented Mathematica package that uses a MathLink interface for passing data between Mathematica and POTLIB subprograms. GNU make and C/FORTRAN compilers are used to automate building the executables on various platforms.

Running time:
The examples included in the distribution file take just a few minutes to run.
