## internal valence force field (IVFF)

https://doi.org/10.1351/goldbook.I03111
A force field expressed in terms of bond-stretching, @[email protected], torsional and other displacements directly connected to the structural parameters of the molecule: $V=\frac{1}{2}\ \sum k_{ij}\ R_{i}\ R_{j}$ or $V=\frac{1}{2}\ \sum K_{ij}\ R_{i}\ R_{j}$ where $$k$$ (or $$K$$) are the @[email protected] and $$R$$ the internal @[email protected] coordinates.
