Numerical Methods for the Coupled Equations: A Survey

  • Franco Antonio Gianturco
Part of the Lecture Notes in Chemistry book series (LNC, volume 11)


In the previous Chapters we indicated and discussed in some detail the theoretical models which have been worked out from first principles and employed in treating the various collisional processes that preside over the transfer of transitional and rotovibrational energies in simple diatomic gases. Also underlined was how the need to know many cross sections at several collision energies, and for increasingly more sophisticated systems, has in recent years spurred the development of dimensionality reduction schemes which could hopefully allow the actual computation of the required cross sections with the necessary level of accuracy but with a much less expensive computational effort.
