                         quantum-chemical ab initio calculations are carried out on grids 
                         of the configuration space, which permit a spherical-harmonics 
                         representation of the potential energy surfaces (PESs). Dimer 
                         geometries are considered for sets of representative leading 
                         configurations, and the PESs are analyzed in terms of isotropic 
                         and anisotropic contributions. The leading configurations are 
                         individuated by selecting a minimal set of mutual orientations of 
                         molecules needed to build the spherical-harmonic expansion on

                         corresponding to repulsive and bonding dimer geometries and the 
                         averaged isotropic term, for each pair of interacting molecules,
