The direct simulation Monte Carlo method has been extended to describe the detailed chemistry in the ionosphere. A theoretical relationship between the continuum reaction rates and the reaction cross sections required for the Monte Carlo simulation has been established. The effects of high energy electrons on the ambient ionosphere has been investigated and details of the nonequilibrium results are presented. Author
