The research performed under this contract was directed toward the analysis of collisional processes involving electrons, ions, and molecules. These collisional processes are of substantial interest in basic kinetic studies, as well as in a number of engineering applications, particularly in the field of propulsion, chemical laser systems and power generation. Several theoretical approaches to predict kinetic cross-sections have been investigated. Research was performed in the areas of electron-atom, electron-molecule, atom-atom, and molecule-molecule collisions. A chronological list is given of the 8 journal and book publications and 24 invited talks from this program.
