Information theory has been shown to provide a simple means of deriving population distributions in vibrationally excited gases where rapid vibration-vibration energy transfer occurs. The implications of the distributions obtained with respect to temperatures of different modes, decay of vibrational populations, and the possibility of vibrationally induced reactions are discussed.
