D ec 2 00 3 M ode-coupling theory for reaction dynam ics in liquids

A theory for chem icalreaction dynam ics in condensed phase system s based on the generalized Langevin form alism of G rote and Hynes is presented. A m icroscopic approach to calculate the dynam ic friction isdeveloped within the fram ework ofa com bination ofkinetic and m ode-coupling theories. The approach provides a powerfulanalytic toolto study chem… CONTINUE READING
