Hyperfine transitions and fusion in flight via the Faddeev approach

The Faddeev approach, modified for long-range Coulomb forces, is used to study the s-wave scattering states of the muonic atomic systems p+pµ, d+dµ, t+tµ, t+dµ and d+tµ. Elastic and hyperfine-transition cross sections of p+pµ are calculated with and without the hyperfme splitting. Fusion-in-flight reactions are studied. A sharp resonance of the rate of fusion-in-flight is observed for d+tµ atE=76.3 eV. A similar resonance-like behavior of the fusion-in-flight is also obtained in the symmetric mesic atomic collisions.
