Does anyone have a reference for the details of energy and by-products produced in an annihilation reaction of a matter deuterium atom [np]e- with anti-matter antideuterium atom [p[itex]^{\overline{}}[/itex]n[itex]^{\overline{}}[/itex]]e+ (note: is there a better Latex code for putting bar to show antimatter ?)(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

As I understand the situation energy would be released two basic ways:

1. Interaction of the two leptons e-(electron) and e+ (positron) associated with the proton p and antiproton p[itex]^{\overline{}}[/itex]

2. Interaction of the four nucleons (p,p[itex]^{\overline{}}[/itex],n,n[itex]^{\overline{}}[/itex]) associated with the two atoms, one matter [np] the other antimatter [p[itex]^{\overline{}}[/itex]n[itex]^{\overline{}}[/itex]].

I am interested in the details, all the predicted steps such a reaction would take. Thank you
