Part of the NATO ASI Series book series (NSSB, volume 145)


Dissociative recombination of molecular ions:
$$ A{B^ + } + e \to A + B $$
has been presented and discussed by B. Mitchell, in the same volume. The current chapter will comment on some interesting features of this process and present recent theoretical developments in this field. Examples and extension to related processes will close this chapter.
