Natural Localized Molecular Orbitals (NLMO)

Natural localized molecular orbitals (NLMOs) are semi-localized MOs
that are automatically calculated for several keywords (DIPOLE, NCS,
NJC, STERIC, PLOT) as well as for the NLMO keyword. The composition
of each NLMO is displayed in terms of the %-contribution from its parent NBO,
as well as the atomic hybrids contributing to the "delocalization tail"
needed for full double occupancy. Results are illustrated
for the formamide molecule,
RHF/3-21G level at B3LYP/6-311++G** geometry (see NBO 6.0 Manual,
p. B22 for additional discussion).
