The electron-impact dissociation cross sections of the H2 molecule have been calculated for the processes leading to H(1s)+H(1s) and to H(1s)+H(2s) by means of the Born-Rudge and Born-Ochkur methods. In addition to direct excitation to the repulsive b 3Σu+ state for the first process, cross sections are also computed for excitation of the discrete levels of the a 3Σg+, c 3Piu, d 3Piu, and e 3Σu+ states in order to account for cascades. These two mechanisms are found to be of equal importance… 
Electronic excitation and dissociation of O2 and S2 by electron impact.
The impact-parameter method is used to calculate integral cross sections for electronic excitation and dissociation of O/sub 2/ and S/ sub 2/ by electron impact and the effect of changing the initial rotational state is small.
Electronic Excitation of Molecules by Electron Impact
In this talk I will review the recent progress that has been made in the theoretical determination of differential and integral cross sections for the electronic excitation of molecules by low-energy
Electronic excitation of H2O by electron impact
Recently we made calculations of differential and integral cross sections for the X1A1 to 3A1(3a1 to 3sa1) transition in H2O in the energy range of 12-30 eV, where the distorted-wave approximation
Production of excited hydrogen atoms by photodissociation of the H2 molecule near threshold
The photodissociation of the hydrogen molecule near the dissociation threshold into H(1s)+H(2s,2p) states is considered. The experimentally observed formation of H(2p) can only be explained by the

Electron and vibrational kinetics in the hydrogen positive column

Photon and electron-impact dissociation cross sections of HCl
We compute high-energy electron-impact (100-1000 eV) dissociation and photodissociation cross sections of HCl producing H and CI neutral atoms through the transition. The electron-impact dissociation
