dc.description.abstractA further refined, global potential energy surface (PES) is computed for the $C_{3v}$ symmetry isotopologues of ammonia, including $^{14}$NH$_3$, $^{15}$NH$_3$, $^{14}$ND$_3$ and $^{14}$NT$_3$. The refinement procedure was similar to that used in our previously reported PES \underline{\textbf{129}}, 214304 (2008).}, but now extends to higher $J$ energy levels and other isotopologues. Both the diagonal Born-Oppenheimer correction and the non-adiabatic correction were included. $J=0-6$ rovibrational energy levels and transition frequencies of $^{14}$NH$_3$ computed on this PES are in excellent agreement with HITRAN data. Statistics on nearly 4100 transitions and more than 1000 energy levels demonstrate the accuracy achieved by the state-of-the-art "Best Theory + Experiment" strategy. Most transition frequencies are of $\pm0.01-0.02$ cm$^{-1}$ accuracy. Similar accuracy has been found on $^{15}$NH$_3$ $J=0-3$ rovibrational energy levels. Several transitions and energy levels in HITRAN have been identified as unreliable or suspicious, and some have been re-assigned. For $^{14}$ND$_3$ and $^{14}$NT$_3$, $J=0-3$ calculations have been performed. Agreement for pure rotation-inversion transitions is nearly perfect, with more reliable energy levels presented. On the other hand, our $J=0$ results suggest a re-analysis on the $^{14}$ND$_3$ $\nu_1$ band origin is needed. Finally, we will discuss possible future refinements leading to an even better final PES for Ammonia.en_US
