Abstract : A summary is given on force constant computations on some small inorganic molecules. The molecules considered were selected largely from the interhalogens, the noble gas compounds and some related molecules. When possible, the numerical force constants were analyzed in terms of models related to the type of molecular bonds. A method was developed to permit analysis of underdetermined systems in a statistically sound fashion. While this does not permit a unique solution, it conveniently requires that force constants for similar molecules be transferable and provides an uncertainty estimate. This method was appropriate for a number of the cases considered. (Author)
