Abstract

Electron-ion recombination is one of the most fundamental concepts in atomic and molecular physics and plays a major role in the chemistries of the upper atmosphere, interstellar space, combustion and thermonuclear fusion. Indeed, it has been from studies of these fields that much of our knowledge concerning the mechanisms of recombination has come. These studies have been backed up by a considerable theoretical and experimental effort in an attempt to gain a quantitative understanding of recombination as well as to elucidate the fine details underlying the electron capture and stabilization process for different ion species. In turn great advances have been made in these areas as a result of our improved understanding of the physics of recombination. This trend will undoubtedly continue.
