Program RKR1

RKR1 is R.J. Le Roy's program for applying the first-order Rydberg-Klein-Rees procedure to spectroscopic constants for a diatomic molecule to determine its potential energy function. This program allows the vibrational energies and inertial rotational constants to be defined by pure Dunham expansions, by pure near-dissociation expansions (NDEs), or by mixed Dunham/NDE functions. For a case in which only vibrational data are available, it allows an overall potential to be constructed by combining directly-calculated well widths with inner turning points generated from a Morse function. It also allows one to automatically smooth over irregular or unphysical behaviour of the steep inner wall of the potential.
