Photodissociation Dynamics: Spectroscopy and Fragmentation of Small Polyatomic Molecules

This article elucidates the achievements in calculating photodissociation go sections and fragment kingdom distributions from first ideas, ranging from multi-dimensional power strength surfaces and the Schrödinger equation of nuclear movement. Following a longer advent during which many of the varieties of observables are defined, the following 4 chapters summarize the elemental theoretical instruments, particularly the time-independent and time-dependent quantum mechanical techniques in addition to the classical photograph of photodissociation.

This review chapter clearly reflects the first statement, and without large computers (and a vast amount of computer time) the second statement would also have remained true.

54 I. Introduction This chapter reviews recent progress in the theory of electron-atom and electron-ion scattering and describ6s some recent calculations that can be compared with experiments. The review is restricted to theories that describe elastic scattering and excitation for incident electron energies that range from zero energy to many times the ionization threshold. The important ionization process will not be considered here. An enormous amount of work has been carried out in this field in recent years driven mainly by the many applications in astronomy, laser physics, plasma physics and upper atmosphere physics, which require accurate scattering data for their interpretation.
