Paper Abstract

In order to study the influence of correlation of the angular momenta before and after collision on the course of orientational relaxation of spherical top molecules, a Markovian master equation with the collision kernel by Keilson and Storer is considered. The equation is solved analytically in the case of the complete angular momentum reorientation due to a collision. The results obtained allow one to establish the upper and the lower limit of the time development of the orientational correlation functions.
