This paper considers the asymptotic (semiclassical) analysis of a forward glory and a rainbow in the differential cross section (DCS) of a state-to-state chemical reaction, whose scattering amplitude is given by a Legendre partial wave series (PWS). A recent paper by C. Xiahou, J. N. L. Connor and D. H. Zhang [Phys. Chem. Chem. Phys., 2011, 13, 12981](More)
State-of-the-art differential cross sections (DCSs) have been reported by Wang et al. [Proc. Nat. Acad. Sci. (U.S.), 2008, 105, 6227] for the state-to-state F + H(2)→ FH + H reaction using fully quantum-state-selected crossed molecular beams. We theoretically analyze the angular scattering of this reaction, in order to quantitatively understand the physical(More)
Three new contributions to the complex angular momentum (CAM) theory of differential cross sections (DCSs) for chemical reactions are reported. They exploit recent advances in the Padé reconstruction of a scattering (S) matrix in a region surrounding the ReJ axis, where J is the total angular momentum quantum variable, starting from the discrete values, J(More)
Software for categorizing a cloud of more than 300,000 three-dimensional (3-D) surface data points, captured from a human subject, is presented. The software is part of an incremental approach that progressively refines the identification of human anthropometric landmarks. The first phase of identification is to orient and segment the human body data(More)
The differential cross section (DCS) for the I + HI(v(i) = 0, j(i) = 0) --> IH(v(f) = 0, j(f) = 2) + I reaction at a translational energy of 21.3 meV is studied, where v(i), j(i) and v(f), j(f) are vibrational, rotational quantum numbers for the initial and final states respectively. We apply new theoretical developments (since 2001) in nearside-farside(More)
The differential cross section (DCS) for the CH4 + Cl → CH3 + HCl reaction is studied at six total energies where all of the species are in their ground states. The scattering (S) matrix elements have been calculated by the rotating line umbrella method for a dual-level ab initio analytic potential energy surface. We make the first application to this(More)
We make the first application of semiclassical (SC) techniques to the plane-wavepacket formulation of time-domain (T-domain) scattering. The angular scattering of the state-to-state reaction, H + D(2)(v(i) = 0, j(i) = 0) → HD(v(f) = 3, j(f) = 0) + D, is analysed, where v and j are vibrational and rotational quantum numbers, respectively. It is proved that(More)
We report two new contributions for understanding the quantum dynamics of the benchmark state-to-state reaction, F + H2(vi, ji, mi) → FH(vf, jf, mf) + H, where (vi, ji, mi) and (vf, jf, mf) are the initial and final vibrational, rotational, and helicity quantum numbers, respectively. We analyze product differential cross sections (DCSs) for the transitions,(More)
This paper makes two applications of Heisenberg's S matrix program (HSMP) to the differential cross section (DCS) of the benchmark reaction F + H2(vi = 0, ji = 0, mi = 0) → FH(vf = 3, jf = 3, mf = 0) + H, at a relative translational energy of 0.119 eV (total energy, 0.3872 eV), where v, j, m are vibrational, rotational, and helicity quantum numbers,(More)
