Abstract

The conventional ideas about normal modes and molecular vibration are currently undergoing closer examination for highly vibrationally-excited systems. The standard method involves calculating normal modes with the GF matrix technique. Normal modes assume a harmonic potential and. in fact, in high energy systems local anharmonic modes have given a better description of the spectrum than (harmonic) normal modes of the molecules as a whole.
