On the fourth order Hamiltonian of an asymmetric rotor molecule of orthorhombic symmetry
AbstractThe fourth order Hamiltonian of an asymmetric rotor molecule of orthorhombic symmetry given recently has been considerably reduced in complexity through the use of equations derived from the basic relationship among the angular momentum operators. The reduced Hamiltonian obtained provides a most convenient starting point for the calculation of rotational energy levels from a solution of the complete secular equation, for a perturbation theory solution to the problem of centrifugal distortion, and for the deduction of sum rules among the energy levels.
