16. The FBR to DVR transformation was first introduced by D. O. Harris, G. G. Engerholm, W. D. Gwinn [J. Chem. Phys. 43, 1515 (1965)], who used it as a tool to evaluate potential energy matrix elements in the FBR. A. S. Dickinson and P. R. Certain [J. Chem. Phys. 49, 4209 (1968)] subsequently showed that this was equivalent to evaluating the matrix elements by Gaussian quadrature when the basis was composed of orthogonal polynomials. However, both of these studies were confined to one-dimensional problems, and their focus was on the calculation of the FBR matrix elements. The idea of using the DVR as the primary representation, with all of its concomitant advantages in terms of sparsity and locality for high dimensional problems, was John Light’s.
