Ma, Q., R.H. Tipping, and N.N. Lavrentieva, 2012: Theoretical studies of N2-broadened half-widths of H2O lines involving high j states. Molec. Phys., 110, 307-331, doi:10.1080/00268976.2011.646333.

Based on the properties of the energy levels and wave functions of H2O states, one can categorize H2O lines into individually defined groups such that within the same group, the energy levels and the wave functions associated with two paired lines have an identity property while those associated with different pairs have a similarity property. Meanwhile, by thoroughly analyzing processes used to calculate N2-broadened half-widths, it was found that the "Fourier series" of W(a)L1K1K'1(t;jiτf) and W(a)L1K1K'1(t;jfτi) and a factor P222(jfτfjiτi) are the key items in the Robert-Bonamy formalism to distinguish contributions to ReS2(rc) among different transitions of jfτf ← jiτi. However, these items are completely determined by the energy levels and the wave functions associated with their initial and final states and they must bear the latter's features as well. Thus, it becomes obvious that for two paired lines in the same group, their calculated half-widths must be almost identical and the values associated with different pairs must vary smoothly as their ji values vary. Thus, the pair identity and the smooth variation rules are established within individual groups of lines. One can use these rules to screen half-width data listed in HITRAN and to improve the data accuracies.
