This work is a systematic description of the analysis of molecular spectra of diatomic molecules, particularly infrared and Raman spectra, to extract precise information about molecular structure and electric and magnetic properties. A number of subjects are covered in depth, with reviews of miscellaneous topics important in the future progress of experiment and theory in this field. Because of its coverage and scope in relation to physical chemistry and molecular physics, this work serves as a useful reference for all researchers in chemistry, physics, spectroscopy, and related fields.
