Abstract : The master equation representing the dissociation-recombination kinetics of a dilute diatomic gas can be reduced to a system of inhomogeneous nonlinear Volterra integral equations of the second kind. Accurate solutions of these equations can be obtained using the self-consistent matrix iteration procedure proposed by Rush and Pritchard, under certain relatively unrestrictive conditions. (Author)
