The nuclear dynamics of the metastable H2He+ complex is explored by symmetry considerations and angular momentum addition rules as well as by accurate quantum chemical computations with complex coordinate scaling, complex absorbing potential, and stabilization techniques. About 200 long-lived rovibrational resonance states of the complex are characterized and selected long-lived states are analyzed in detail. The stabilization mechanism of these long-lived resonance states is discussed on the basis of probability density plots of the wave functions. Overlaps of wave functions derived by a reduced-dimensional model with the full-dimensional wave functions reveal dissociation pathways for the long-lived resonance states and allow the calculation of their branching ratios.
