Abstract:

The diffusion theory of reaction rates is considered in the Ornstein--Uhlenbeck approximation. The rate constant is calculated by using a modified Kramers eigenvalue method and by using the expected time formulation. The transmission coefficient is calculated. It is shown how correlation functions can be calculated. In the last section, a model problem is considered. Author
