Quantum reactive scattering: the time-independent approach. I. Principles and early developments

Conference paper
Part of the Lecture Notes in Chemistry book series (LNC, volume 77)

Summary

An introduction to the field of time-independent quantum reactive scattering is given, focussing on triatomic (A+BC) systems. Concepts of elastic, inelastic and reactive scattering as well as coordinate systems are discussed and the developments are outlined which led to the first numerically exact calculations for H+H2.
