In addition, we have cut losses in our power distribution, achieved improvements in artificial lift adoption, introduced gas breakthrough controllers and reduced water treatment and separation energy requirements.
They are treated as adjustable parameters which have to be determined from the best fit to the experimental data, level energies, B(E2) transition strengths and two-neutron separation energy. The corresponding collective potential energy surface (PES) is obtained by transforming the collective coordinate [a.sub.2v] into the intrinsic coordinate [a.sub.2v].
According to the references [27, 28], the difference range of 0.10~0.68 kcal/mol between the enantiomers were in the range of chiral separation energy. The absolute value of [?][?]Gbinding of 11~12 were smaller than 0.1 kcal/mol.
