A time-dependent coupled channel (TDCC) method has been developed to study rearrangement reactions in few-body Coulomb systems. We apply the TDCC method to muon transfer in muonic deuterium and triton collisions. The muon-transfer cross section (S-wave) is calculated for triton energies of 100 eV-3 keV. The present result is in good agreement with the previous calculation with the coupled rearrangement channel method [Hyp. Interact. 82 (1993), 45]. We also illustrate time evolution of wave functions to understand qualitatively the muon-transfer reaction.
