Abstract

The coordinates of earlier papers of this series are extended from linear collisions to reactions in three dimensions. Termed “natural collision coordinates,” they have a unique property of passing smoothly from those suited to reactants to those suited to products. Potential applications to bimolecular reactions are described.
