The vibration-rotation-LAM Hamiltonian requires two independent separation conditions to reduce the Coriolis interaction and the vibration-LAM kinetic energy interaction. In the limit of the LAM approaching a SAM, the effective vibration-rotation Hamiltonian and/or energy must reduce to the usual vibration-rotation Hamiltonian when no internal motion is a LAM. We show how to perform this reduction, especially as it relates to the T-and R-transformations and the normal coordinate transformation.
