III. Dimer States For each monomer, monomer state For each monomer, monomer state –need E level calculations To do this, we wanted to vibrationally average the corrected potential for monomer modes. To do this, we wanted to vibrationally average the corrected potential for monomer modes. –A big job, as discussed previously! –Billions up to trillions of function evaluations required!
