This input will perform the alignment of the second geometry (GEO2) on the first one (GEO1). Atom number 11 (C11) of the second geometry will be moved to the position of atom number 15 of the first geometry (C15). The vector C11 C14 in GEO1 will be aligned with the vector C15 C12 of GEO1. Finally the plane 11 14 1 of GEO1 will be aligned with the plane 15 12 9 of GEO2.
