QuantuMagiC is a FORTRAN program based upon the quantum Monte Carlo (QMC) method for solving the electronic, non-relativistic, clamped-nuclei Schrödinger equation. The current version performs variational Monte Carlo (VMC) and fixed-node diffusion Monte Carlo (DMC) computations of the energy and other properties of atoms and molecules. Version 7.7 can perform both all-electron and effective-core potential calculations. Before using this program I suggest you read as many of the following as possible: 1. P. J. Reynolds, D. M. Ceperley, B. J. Alder, and W. A. Lester, Jr., ``Diffusion Monte Carlo for Atoms and Molecules,'' J. Chem. Phys. 77, 5593-5603 (1982). 2. W. A. Lester, Jr. and B. L.
