In Fig. 1 we show the total reaction probabilities, , for all that we have computed. The most obvious feature of this plot is the monotonic decline in with increasing at nearly every energy. In Fig. 2, we show the reaction probability for . Except for the structure caused by the overlapping resonances, the reaction probabilities increase in a nearly linear fashion with increasing energy. Similar to , all trace of the rapid rise in reaction probability at eV, so evident at has totally disappeared. It is also clear from Fig. 2 that averaging over will greatly dampen any resonance structure that persists at total higher angular momentum. Another important feature of the reaction probability profiles that is shown clearly in Fig. 2 is the absence of any ``energy shift'' resulting from centrifugal barriers. At each , the reaction occurs at the threshold energy of eV, indicating that the coriolis terms are as important as the centrifugal ones. This point will be discussed further in a future article.
In Fig. 3, we plot the total reaction probabilities but weighted by the degeneracy factor. This plot gives a very different indication of the importance of the contribution of each partial wave to the overall reaction cross section than one might get from a casual glance at Fig. 1. We see that the contribution of is negligible. Moreover, the importance of each partial wave increases with until reaching a maximum near . For eV the weighted reaction probability for and are similar with being greater for eV.
