dc.description.abstractThe most accurate published intermolecular potential for $Ar-H_{2}$ was obtained more than five years ago by Le Roy and $Hutson^{1}$ from a fit to infrared and microwave spectroscopic data and differential cross section measurements. Potentials energy surfaces for $Ar-H_{2}$ obtained from ab initio calculations have been proposed $recently,^{2-3}$ but they have not been tested directly against those data. Although $Ar-H_{2}$ is one of the simplest Van der Waals complexes, it is one of the first systems for which fully dimensional ab initio potentials are available, so this provides a unique opportunity to assess quantitatively the accuracy of intermolecular potentials which are obtained ab initio. We have used these theoretical potential energy surfaces for $Ar-H_{2}$ to calculate infrared and microwave transition frequencies for comparison with experiment. The results of these calculations will be presented and discussed.en_US
