January 16-18, 2006
Royal Society Discussion Meeting (Jan 16-17)
and a Satellite Meeting (Jan 18)
Physics, Chemistry, and Astronomy of H3+
Organized by T. R. Geballe, D. Gerlich, T. Oka and J. Tennyson
(B. J. McCall, Secretary)
This Discussion Meeting is a second attempt to assemble researchers from
different fields in which H3+ plays a major role and
to discuss the most fundamental molecular ion from a variety of perspectives.
Talks from the 2000 meeting have been published in Phil. Trans. R. Soc.
Lond. A (2000) 358, 2359-2559. The recent exciting developments related to
H3+ and deuterated species make this discussion
particularly timely. The discussions will include the following subjects:
New Spectroscopy of H3+
and Deuterated Species,
First Principles Calculation of H3+
Theory of the Triplet State and Asymptotic Vibrational States
New Experiment and Theory of Electron Recombination
Dissociation Dynamics and Thermalization
Laboratory Chemistry of H3+
and Deuterated Species
Nuclear Spin in Chemical Reactions
Observed Ubiquity of H3+ in Interstellar Space
Radio Observations of Interstellar H2D+ and
and its Isotopomers in Deuterium Fractionation
Hot and Diffuse Gas near the Galactic Center and Metastable
H3+ and Isotopomers in Planets and Protoplanets
The Royal Society Discussion Meeting will include 15 invited talks
with plenty of discussion time, as well as a poster session.
The talks and discussions will be
published in the
Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society of London.
satellite meeting will include contributed talks.
