Development Of Theoretical And Computational Methods For Three-Body Processes, Juan Blandon Zapata Jan 2009

Development Of Theoretical And Computational Methods For Three-Body Processes, Juan Blandon Zapata

Electronic Theses and Dissertations

This thesis discusses the development and application of theoretical and computational methods to study three-body processes. The main focus is on the calculation of three-body resonances and bound states. This broadly includes the study of Efimov states and resonances, three-body shape resonances, three-body Feshbach resonances, three-body pre-dissociated states in systems with a conical intersection, and the calculation of three-body recombination rate coefficients. The method was applied to a number of systems. A chapter of the thesis is dedicated to the related study of deriving correlation diagrams for three-body states before and after a three-body collision. More specifically, the thesis discusses ...
