### Abstract

A more compact and standard formulation for the quantum kinetic energy operator of a system of nuclei exercising arbitrary amplitude motion is presented, deriving from a direct transformation from Cartesian centre of mass source coordinates of a set of GJV describing the system to internal and rotational curvilinear coordinates.
