    The observed zero-point inertial defect Δ0=I0cc-I0aa-I0bb is often used as a test of the planarity of a molecule, but this test is difficult to make quantitative when the information on the vibrations and vibration–rotation interactions is limited. The general formula for the inertial...

    An improved effective core potential (ECP) technique is described and used to give ECP parameters for the atoms of the first two rows of the periodic table. A given basis set is parametrized which allows for a direct comparison with all-electron calculations. Extensive test calculations on...
