Abstract

Resonances in slow molecular collisions are demonstrated by exact numerical solution of the close-coupled′equations for rotational excitation, including closed channels. The breakdown of the adiabatic approximation is exhibited. Resonance energies can be essentially predicted by a "best local" approximation.
