Classical Dynamics of Van der Waals Molecules

  • Stephen K. Gray
Part of the NATO ASI Series book series (NSSB, volume 227)

Abstract

We discuss the application of classical mechanics to Van der Waals molecules and their reactions, with particular emphasis on the vibrational predissociation of XBC systems, where X is weakly bound to a molecular fragment BC. The role of nonlinear phenomena in influencing the classical reaction dynamics is stressed, as is the need to discover quantum and experimental consequences of such behaviour.
