We describe the (α n μ)-(d t μ) continuum above and below the d+(t μ)1s threshold using the R-matrix formalism. The continuum is explicitly constructed in an adiabatic approximation, and the asymptotic phase shifts and amplitudes in all channels are obtained. The energy eigenstates are used to compute the fusion reaction cross section for in-flight d+(t μ) fusion, and fusion reaction rates involving transitions from the d+(t μ)1s continuum to be below threshold continuum states.
