Table 4.22 lists the number of axial and radial molecular vibrations associated with each of the layers of carbon atoms of C70. This division into axial and radial molecular modes is only approximate but often gives a good description of the physics of the molecular vibrations. The terms axial and transverse refer to modes associated with motions along and perpendicular to the fivefold axis, respectively. Also included in Table 4.22 are the total number of axial and radial modes for C70+20y, which contains summaries of the mode symmetries for C70, C90, etc.

From Table 4.22 and Eq. (4.5), we see that the number of distinct mode frequencies for C70 is 122. It is sometimes useful to consider these modes as being approximately divided into cap modes and belt modes. Thus the 122

The Dth irreducible representations (91) together with the number of distinct eigenvalues (N„) and the corresponding degeneracies g of the normal modes of the C70 molecule. The symbols and denote the number of distinct eigenvalues associated with the "belt" and "cap" modes, respectively, for each irreducible representation.
