    The coefficients γ of broadening by self-pressure, and pressure of nitrogen, oxygen, and air are calculated for absorption lines of the rotational band and for the v2 band of the ozone molecule for temperatures 296, 252, and 212 K. The calculations are performed by the semiclassical method using rectilinear and exact trajectories for interacting molecules. It is shown that the experimental data obtained for the two bands at T = 296 K can be reconstructed better using different isotropic intermolecular interaction potentials. The experimental and calculated broadening coefficients of ozone absorption lines for the rotational band and for the v2 and v 1 + v3 vibrational bands were used to determine the parameters of an analytical model, which permits one to calculate γ in a wide range of rotational quantum numbers, 0 ≤ J ≤ 45, 0 ≤ Ka ≤ 20, and temperatures of 200-296 K.
