Abstract

The first application to molecular collisions is reported of an approximate version of Fuller's nearside-farside theory of angular scattering. Application is made to resonance and non-resonance angular scattering in the Cl + HCl (v=1, j=5)→ClH(v′ = 0, j′ = 15) + Cl reaction. The nearside-farside theory provides insight into structured angular distributions, is simple to incorporate into existing computer programs, and should find wide application in molecular collision theory calculations.
