Computer software for understanding resonances and resonance-related phenomena in chemical reactions
MetadataShow full item record
In numerical modelling of chemical reactions one calculates the scattering matrix for the required values of energy and angular momentum. Having done so, one still faces the non-trivial task of extracting detailed information about the reaction mechanism. We discuss the methods and numerical tools for such an analysis in terms of resonance poles and semiclassical trajectories. Our approach avoids calculating the scattering matrix in semiclassical approximation, and employs its numerical values computed previously by an accurate scattering code.
