Paper Abstract

Intramolecular vibrational redistribution in a polyatomic molecule leads to very considerable narrowing of spectra of purely rotational transitions in microcanonical ensembles of many vibrational states. It is discussed how this effect may be explored to study two important characteristics of intramolecular vibrational dynamics: the onset of transition form the regular vibrational motion to the chaotic one, and the rate of intramolecular redistribution of vibrational energy from one mode of a molecule to another modes.
