Muon-Catalyzed Fusion of Hydrogen-Isotope Nuclei

The basic concept of muon-catalyzed fusion (muCF) refers to the fusion reaction
between hydrogen nuclei, which takes place with an essential probability in
muon presence. Contrary to the fusion, in the case of muon catalyzed fusion
there is no need for heating the nuclei to produce the fusion reactions, and
that is why the muCF phenomenon can really be called cold fusion.
Now muon-catalyzed fusion (muCF) is an independent trend in modern physics
research. The muCF contains study of mu-atomic and mu-molecular processes,
as well as nuclear reactions in the bound states of muonic molecules. The
state of the art of the muCF research is presented in this talk, and the main
applications of muon catalyzed fusion in nuclear and atomic physics are discussed.
