Title: Study of the mechanism of muon-catalyzed t + t fusion reaction

The mechanism for the muon catalyzed fusion reaction t + t → {sup 4}He + 2n + 11.33 MeV is investigated. The model of the cascade reaction with {sup 5}He as an intermediate state is considered, both the ground and the first exited states being taken into account. The neutron energy spectrum measured in the recent experiment is compared with the Monte-Carlo-simulated one. Varying reaction parameters, we obtain optimum values for the relative weights of the {sup 5}He ground and excited states and for the excitation energy and width of the excited state.
