The Gaussian weighting (GW) procedure, recently used in the classical treatment of molecular collisions, is a practical way of taking into account quantization of product vibrational actions. The goal of this brief communication is to show that the GW procedure may drastically improve the predictions of the recoil energy distribution between final fragments… CONTINUE READING
