                         van der Waals system using a spherical harmonics expansion. We use 
                         six leading stable configurations to construct our analytical 
                         potential energy surface (PES) from ab initio calculations guided 
                         qualitatively by the symmetry-adapted perturbation theory (SAPT) 
                         analyses. We extrapolate the energies of the PES performed at the 
                         CCSD(T)/aug-cc-pVnZ (n = 2 and 3) levels to the complete basis set 
                         (CBS) limit. To best fit the shallow potential energy surface of 
                         each leading configuration with the intermolecular distance, it 
                         was employed an extended version of the Rydberg potential. To 
                         assess the quality of our extrapolated analytical PES, we 
                         calculate the second virial coefficients, which are in relatively 
                         good agreement with the experimental data. As a result, the 
                         spherical harmonics coefficients obtained might be of considerable 
                         relevance in spectroscopy and dynamics applications.",
