Multiply ionizing collisions involving highly charged projectiles are intrinsically complex , experimentally because of the large number of final channels into which the collision can go, and theoretically because of the many bodies involved. There appears to be no successful theoretical substitute for following the detailed evolution of each body in the collision. The CTMC calculations are providing new insight into the mechanical workings of the collisions, but do not yet incorporate the effect of the electron-electron potential during the collision. Such calculations reveal what is happening, but leave room, indeed invite, the development of conceptual generalizations and the identification of patterned behavior in the collision.
