For descriptions of the methods (AM1, HF, MP2, ...) and basis sets (3-21G, 3-21G*, 6-31G, ...) see the glossary in section I.C. Predefined means the basis set used is determined by the method.
gaw refers to the group additivity method implemeted in the NIST Chemistry Webbook.
See section Calculated; Vibrations; Scale Factors; Scale factors to list vibrational scaling factors.
See section Calculated; Vibrations; Scale Factors; Calculate a scale factor to calculate a vibrational scaling factor for a given set of molecules.
