Céperley and Alder recently reported [Phys. Rev. A 31, 1999 (1985)] a calculation of the muon sticking probability using three-body Coulomb wave functions of the dt muomolecule. We comment here that such calculations require in addition the incorporation of the interplay of the nuclear reaction dynamics with the Coulomb problem.
