Abstract.

We present the latest developments of the R-matrix method as applied to electron-molecule collisions. A variety of calculations for H2O are presented including the study of rotational excitation and preliminary data for dissociative electron attachment. Results for the application of the recently developed molecular R-matrix with pseudostates (MRMPS) method to neutral and cationic targets are also included. This method is currently being applied to the study of collisions with anionic targets.
