In this paper we show how to employ the inverse Born-Oppenheimer approximation to establish a basis set to study zero kinetic energy (ZEKE) spectroscopy and the autoionization dynamics of the ZEKE Rydberg states. The calculations of vibrational and rotational autoionizations of a homonuclear diatomic molecule will be demonstrated as an example. The scaling laws for the autoionization rate constants are determined through nonlinear modeling of the calculated data.
