correlation diagram

A diagram which shows the relative energies of orbitals, configurations, valence bond structures, or states of reactants and products of a reaction, as a function of the molecular geometry, or another suitable parameter. An example involves the interpolation between the energies obtained for the united atoms and the values for the separated atoms limits.
