We study the A + B → 0 annihilation reaction via multipolar interactions w∼r-s(r distance) in one and two dimensions. For equal numbers of immobile A and B particles we present computer simulations and numerical calculations of the decay. We find at large times that in d dimensions the particle concentration follows n∼t-d/(2s-d)
