Abstract  

Collisional processes involving a negative muon in the deuterium and tritium system were studied using the classical binary encounter theory. The time needed for slowing down of a 10 keV muon was found to be of the order of 10–8s to 10–12s, depending on the density of the system. The Sticking Probabilities for the d-t and d-d fusions were obtained to be 0.48% and 10.2%, respectively. The usefulness of the classical model for understanding fundamental processes in muon catalyzed fusion is suggested.
