Abstract : Two sets of parameters for the Morse part of a Morse-Spline-van der Waals (MSV) interatomic potential appropriate to Ne2 have been derived using solid state data. The first assumes pairwise additivity of the interatomic potential, while the second assumes that the nonpairwise additivity can be approximated by the Axilrod-Teller-Muto three-body force. The second potential appears to be in better agreement with recent high-precision, low-temperature heat-capacity measurements on solid Ne. (Author)
