In (1), we present an expression for the potential energy surface obtained by expanding the potential in a least squares fit of Legendre polynomials.
Currently, Legendre polynomial expansion is widely used in representing the scattering phase function and it is sensitive to the forward scattering peak of phase function.
It is well known that the associated Legendre polynomials play an important role in the central fields when one solves the physical problems in the spherical coordinates.
