The nonlinear optical (NLO) properties of fullerenes have attracted great attention recently. However, there is no agreement on the origin of the second-harmonic generation (SHG) signla, for example. The work reported here could settle this dispute. A theoretical approach to calculating the electric-dipole, magnetic-dipole, and electic-quadrupole transition moments SHG spectra in C60 are calculated.
