Abstract : The report presents results of development of an accurate, physics-based model of vibrational and rotational energytransfer in three-dimensional collisions of rotating diatomic molecules, applicable over a wide range of collision energiesand vibrational / rotational quantum numbers, and results of detailed kinetic modeling studies of state-to-state molecularenergy transfer processes, including excitation of vibrational and electronic states by electron impact, collisional quenchingof excited electronic states, vibration-vibration (V-V) energy transfer, vibration-rotation-translation (V-R-T) relaxation,internal mode energy thermalization, molecular dissociation, and plasma chemical reactions.
