Abstract:The recent observations [1,2] of shape and Feshbach resonances in the high-resolution photoelectron spectra of H$_2$, HD and D$_2$ in the vicinity of the dissociation thresholds of H$_2^+$, HD$^+$ and D$_2^+$ raise questions concerning their potential role in the formation of H$_2^+$ and its isotopomers in the early universe by radiative association, a topic of astrophysical interest~[3]._x000d_ Close-coupling calculations for the cross sections of the reactions_x000d_ \begin{align} _x000d_ \text{H}^+ + \text{H} &\to \text{H}_2^+ + h\nu \\_x000d_ \text{H}^+ + \text{D} &\to \text{HD}^+ + h\nu \\_x000d_ \text{D}^+ + \text{H} &\to \text{HD}^+ + h\nu \\_x000d_ \text{D}^+ + \text{D} &\to \text{D}_2^+ + h\nu,_x000d_ \end{align}_x000d_ will be presented which take into account nonadiabatic couplings involving rovibronic and hyperfine interactions, as well as relativistic and radiative corrections._x000d_ The calculated energies and widths will be compared with the experimental results of Ref. [1,2] for H$_2^+$ and new data for HD$^+$ and D$_2^+$. The effect of the resonances on the radiative association rate coefficients will be discussed, also in comparison with earlier studies [4]._x000d_ _x000d_ \noindent [1] M. Beyer and F.
