## Abstract

The Chemical effects which result from the passage of enegetic atoms through Liquid or gaseous media, are studied by means of exact methods of the theory of probability.

In Part I, considering onIy the hot reactions caused by the initial hot atoms, genera! equations for the statistical theory of hot reactions are derived and a general mathematical solution for the probability distribution is obtained when a very weak coupling by valence bonds (billiard-baII model is assumed.

In Part II, the hot atoms are considered as a multiplying system whose growth is chacacterized by parameters defining a Markoff process. Using again the billiard-ball model, the distribution of the number of hot products is determined.
