Transition state theory without time-reversal symmetry: chaotic ionization of the hydrogen atom


We present the first application of transition state theory to a system that evolves from an initial to a final state without time-reversal symmetry. The problem studied is the chaotic ionization of a hydrogen atom in crossed electric and magnetic fields. The stable manifolds of the transition state reveal a fractal tiling which connects the geometrical… (More)
