Number of postprojection imaginary frequencies for the reaction in rectilinear coordinates plotted as a function of the hyperspherical coordinates. The solid lines are contours of the underlying PES, shown as a guide to the eye (plotted for energies up to ).
The frequencies of selected symmetry breaking modes along the MEP. The panels are (from top to bottom) for , H, D. The dashed lines correspond to the postprojection frequencies in rectilinear coordinates, and the solid lines to postprojection frequencies in curvilinear coordinates. Note that the reaction coordinate in the top panel has been scaled up by a factor of 2 for ease of plotting.
The difference in ZPEs of the spectator mode postprojection calculated as , where and represent curvilinear and rectilinear coordinates, respectively. The color is an indication of height and the same scale is used for each reaction for comparison. It is seen that differences are greatest for and smallest, on average, for . The scale on the color bar is in , is in radians and in . Each plot includes a contour plot of the appropriate PES as a guide [plotted for energies up to and ].
