SUMMARY:

We have applied the methods of quantum reactive scattering to the key
resonant reaction in the muon catalysed fusion cycle that leads to the
formation of a dt$\mu$ muonic molecular ion, in which fusion takes place
very rapidly.  We will present and analyze the resonances which occur in
this reaction for total angular momentum $J_{tot}=0$.
