In this study, Molecular Dynamics simulations were conducted to study the orientational properties of supercooled liquids and glasses. We applied spherical harmonics, spherical invariants, and wavelets to liquid. We proposed the first spherical harmonic-momentum Y1P and second spherical harmonic-kinetic energy Y2K time correlation functions, and wavelet decompositions of spherical invariant quantities. Y1P and Y2K showed characteristics behavior and temperature dependences. Wavelet analysis also showed temperature dependence.
