I describe this process in my article “Widom-Larsen Theory Simplified” as well as in the chapter I co-wrote with Joseph Zawodny of NASA for the Wiley Nuclear Energy Encyclopedia.

Let’s first answer a question the reader didn’t ask: “How much energy is required to initiate the reactions and where does it come from?”
