Uniformized coordinates and an integral expression for the semiclassical S matrix, derived elsewhere, are described and applied to vibrational transition probabilities. The expression obeys microscopic reversibility. The numerical results are compared with the exact quantum mechanical results of Secrest and Johnson.
