Potential-Surface for Molecular Bond Breaking Points (image) American Institute of Physics Share Print E-Mail Caption In this potential-surface picture, the red curve is a reaction pathway. The pink points are the optimal BBPs, and the black points are the minima and transition states. Green lines are the BBP points for all possible Newton trajectories.
