Glory Scattering in Molecular Collisions III
Collisions between indistinguishable molecules
An extended distorted-wave treatment is used to obtain formal expressions for the total cross section when two indistinguishable rigid diatomic molecules, with orbital and nuclear spin angular momenta, collide. Explicit expressions for the cross section are obtained through second order, including the lowest order inelastic effects. An expression for the total inelastic cross section is also given. The results are compared with the corresponding results when distinguishable molecules collide.
