The Role of Spectrum Generating Algebras and Dynamic Symmetries in Molecular Physics
The use of spectrum generating algebras and dynamic symmetries in molecular physics is reviewed. The special role played by the algebra of SO(4) both in rotation-vibration and electronic spectra is emphasized. Examples are presented.
