Abstract

In recent years there has been an increasing use of laser spectroscopic and other techniques to investigate unimolecular dissociations of molecules, both to initiate a dissociation and to measure the formation of the individual quantum states of the immediate reaction products. This chapter is concerned with a description of statistical theories used to calculate the rates of such dissociations, for example, of a molecule AB, AB → A + B, and to calculate the distribution of the quantum states of the fragments A and B.
