Higher Order Processes

Part of the Lecture Notes in Chemistry book series (LNC, volume 10)


We have considered two complementary approaches to the formulation of a rather complete theory for ET and AT reactions. In the first approach the time evolution of the system is described as an infinite perturbation series in eigenstates of the individual reactants (eq.3.13). However, in practice, in most cases all terms higher than first order in the perturbation series have to be omitted, which leads to the rate probability in the nonadiabatic limit.
