N2 - Very accurate variational calculations of the complete pure vibrational spectrum of the ditritium (T2) molecule are performed within the framework where the Born-Oppenheimer approximation is not assumed. After separating out the center-of-mass motion from the total laboratory-frame Hamiltonian, T2 becomes a three-particle problem. States corresponding to the zero total angular momentum, which are pure vibrational states, are spherically symmetric in this framework. The wave functions of these states are expanded in terms of all-particle, one-center, spherically symmetric explicitly correlated Gaussian functions multiplied by even non-negative powers of the internuclear distance. In the calculations the total energies, the dissociation energies, and expectation values of some operators dependent on interparticle distances are determined.
