Potential Energy Surface

 

The potential energy of a ground-state molecular system containing N atoms is a function of its geometry, defined by 3N spatial coordinates (a configuration space). If the energy is imagined as corresponding to a height in a 3N + 1 dimensional space, the resulting landscape of hills, hollows, and valleys is the potential energy surface.
