    • Abstract


      The variable moment of inertia (VMI) model proposed by Holmberg and Lipas has been shown to be a special case of the VMI model of Mariscottiet al. The solution of Mariscotti’s model is expressed in terms of hypergeometric functions, which directly give the rotational energies or their expansions in terms of the quantityF(F+1), whereF is the total angular momentum. The present way of looking at the VMI model also tells us how to write the general dependence of the vibrational energy and the moment of inertia on the energyEJ.
