The papers accumulated during this quantity have been offered at a global symposium on Computational equipment in Chemistry. This symposium used to be backed through IBM Germany and was once held September 17-19, 1979, in undesirable Neuenahr, West Germany. in accordance with Graham Richards [Nature 278, 507 (1979)] the "Third Age of Quantum Chemistry" has started-;-where the result of quantum chemical calculations became so actual and trustworthy that they could advisor the experimentalists of their look for the unknown. the actual instance highlighted by means of Richards was once the suc­ cessful prediction and next id of the relative energies, transition percentages and geometries of the bottom triplet states of acetylene. The theoretical predictions have been dependent mainly upon the paintings of 3 teams: Kammer [Chern. Phys. Lett. ~, 529 (1970)] had made qualitatively right predictions; Demoulin [Chern. Phys. eleven, 329 (1975)] had calculated the capability strength curves for the 2 lowest triplet states (3 and three ) of B A acetylene; and Wetmore and Schaefer III [J. Chern. Phys. ~~ 1648 (1978)] had decided the geometries of the cis (3B and ~A ) and the trans (3B and 3A ) isomers of those sta~es. Inua 2 2 guided seek, Wendt, Hunziker and Hippler [J. Chern. PHys. 70, 4044 (1979)] succeeded to find the expected close to infrared absorption of the cis triplet acetylene (no corresponding absorp­ tion for the trans shape was once stumbled on, that is in contract with theory), and the resolved constitution of the spectrum proven the anticipated geometries conclusively.

Because of the tensorial nature of the polarizability the equations for the Raman effect are somewhat complicated, so that only the IR intensities will be introduced as an example in the following (for Raman see (56».

Such programs give the most reliable answers since they make use of the complementary information from both spectra. Similar programs may be developed for the interpretation of infrared or Raman spectra alone. The algorithm of our program is given in figure 7. It looks quite simple. Its 'intellectual' content is collected in the 'list of interpretation steps', the 'list of the questions' and the 'list of the answers'. The evaluation is performed by questions regarding bands present or absent in a definite region with distinct relative intensity and half width.
