Abstract

A spectral analysis, method for c1assical trajectories, presented in Ref. I, has been used fairly extensively to examine the dynamical properties of molecular and model systems. Result with this technique were shown to be in excellent agreement with quantum mechanical result for the vibrational transition frequencies and dipole matrix element of a Morse $oscillator.^{2}$ In the present lecture, transition intensities for non-resonant and resonant Hamiltonian systems are discussed. Current work is aimed at applying the technique to the vibrational degrees of freedom of triatomic molecules. Advantages and limitations of this spectral analysis are considered.
