We have used the stabilization method with a two-dimensional harmonic oscillator basis set to calculate resonance wave functions for the collinear reactions F + H2 → FH + H, F + HD → FH + D, and F + D2 → FD + D on the well-studied Muckerman no. 5 potential energy surface. We present plots of eigenvalue vs. scale parameter and contour maps of probability density |ψ|2 both showing the relative stability of resonance roots for these systems. In addition, the contour maps provide a clear assignment of quantum numbers and a pictorial illustration of the dynamical interpretation of the resonances.
