Calculated molecular properties such as dissociation energies, electronic transition moments, lifetimes and dipole moments are compared to existing experimental data. Spectrally averaged cross-sections resulting from the electronic transitions are also described. These cross-sections contain contributions from transitions between bound states as well as transitions between bound and continuum states. The application of the theoretical results to the problem of entry into the atmospheres of the massive outer planets with carbonaceous heat shields is briefly discussed. en_US dc.format.extent 113085 bytes dc.format.mimetype image/jpeg dc.language.iso English en_US dc.publisher Ohio State University en_US dc.title A THEORETICAL STUDY OF SELECTED DOUBLET AND QUARTET STATES OF CH AND CROSS SECTIONS FOR ITS ALLOWED TRANSITIONS en_US dc.type article en_US
