Abstract

An approximation is proposed for calculations of average properties of high-lying vibrational states of polyatomics. The method employs a statistical model for the wavefunctions. The approximation was tested against exact, extensive numerical results for transition moment distributions in two-mode model systems. Good agreement was found.
