Unimolecular rate theory for various types of reactions is implemented for any looseness of transition state. Quantum states are counted for all but the “transitional” modes, their phase space being counted via Monte Carlo sampling. The rate constant k_(EJ) is then weighted with the initial E and J distributions.
