An extended analysis of the reaction mechanisms involved within deuteron interaction with nuclei is presented. An increased attention is devoted to the breakup mechanism, all its components, namely the elastic, inelastic (fusion), and total breakup being carefully considered. Next, the direct reactions represented by the stripping and pick-up mechanisms are discussed. Finally, the pre-equilibrium and compound-nucleus contributions, corrected for the breakup, stripping, and pick-up decrease of the total reaction cross section, complete the deuteron-induced reaction cross section analysis. The overall agreement between the measured data and model calculations validates the description of nuclear mechanisms taken into account for the deuteron-nucleus interaction.
