    The vinoxy radical ·CH[sub 2]CHO is a product of the reaction of O([sup 3]P) atoms with terminal alkenes and can also be made by photodissociation of an alkyl vinyl ether. In either case it is formed in a vibrationally excited state. The nascent radical displays a rich electronic spectrum to...

    Exact relationship is developed that connects the vibrational relaxation number, Z[sup DSMC, sub Ï…], used in the direct simulation Monte Carlo method and that employed in continuum simulations. An approximate expression for Z[sup DSMC, sub Ï…] is also derived that is cost-effective and...
