# ADF is capable of performing both linear transits, and non-linear transits,
# and is the default when the LINEARTRANSIT or TRANSIT sub-block is included in
# the 'Geometry' block.
# The new transit code works differently to the old: the transit is represented
# as a sequence of constrained optimizations. A 'Constraints' block is used to
# delineate the constraints applied at each stage of the transit.
# Non-linear transits are possible, and can even be combined with linear
# transits in other coordinates. To perform a non-linear transit in a particular
# coordinate, explicit values must be given.

# In the example above, 4 values are given for the distance between atoms 1 and
# 2. This distance constraint will be applied simultaneously with the linear
# transit constraints for the angle, with other degrees of freedom optimized at
# each stage of the transit.
# Finally, it should be pointed out that 'full constraints' are used by
# default in the transit calculations. These constraints are required to be
# fully met at each intermediate geometry. You can use partially converged constraints,
# that are fully met only at the converged geometries, by supplying the
# PARTIALCONVERGE option to the 'Constraints' subkey of the 'Geometry' block (not
# to be confused with the 'Constraints' block at root level).
