In tetratomic molecules, there are three independent vector coordinates, rl, r2, and r3, which we can think of as three bonds. The general algebraic theory tells us that a quantization of these coordinates (and associated momenta) leads to the algebra . . .G = U1(4) ⊗ U2(4) ⊗ U3(4). . . . . . .(5.1). . . As in the previous case of two bonds, discussed in Chapter 4, we introduce boson operators for each bond . . .σ †1, π†1μ , μ = 0, ±1 ,. . . . . .σ †2, π†2μ , μ = 0, ±1 ,. . . . . .σ †3, π†3μ , μ = 0, ±1 ,. . . . . .(5.2). . . together with the corresponding annihilation operators σ1, π1μ, σ2, π2μ, σ3, π3μ. The elements of the algebras Ui(4) are the same as in Table 2.1, except that a bond index i = 1, 2, 3 is attached to them.
