Abstract : The procedures used to calculate rate constants for certain ionization and recombination reactions are described. Results of calculations based upon these procedures and analytical expressions which approximate the values found with the computer are presented. The only recombination reactions treated are those which yield a hydrogenic ion. Extension of the present formalism to cases where multi-electron ions are formed is restricted primarily by the lack of convenient radiative transition rate information for multi- electron systems.
