Abstract

A finite difference method is used to determine the eigenvalues for motion in hyperspherical angular variables as a function of the hyperspherical radius. Degeneracies in the resulting correlation diagram are taken to infer the nature of the angular motions at different radii. It is concluded that the potential of Burton et al gives rise to well characterized H+/H2motions at proton-molecule separations of R>4.00 a.u.
