We review the basic theoretical formulation for pulsed X-ray scattering on nonstationary molecular states. Relevant time scales are discussed for coherent as well as incpherent X-ray pulses. The general formalism is applied to a nonstationary diatomic molecule in order to highlight the relation between the signal and the time-dependent quamtum distribution of internuclear positions. Finally, a few experimental results are briefly discussed.
