Microscopic calculations of four-body scattering become very challenging in the energy regime above the threshold for four free particles. We consider mixed-isospin four-nucleon reactions initiated by the proton-3H, neutron-3He, or deuteron-deuteron collisions. We solve the Alt, Grassberger, and Sandhas equations for the four-nucleon transition operators in the momentum-space framework. The complex-energy method with special integration weights is applied to deal with the complicated singularities in the kernel of AGS equations. Results for the differential cross section and spin observables in elastic, charge-exchange, transfer, and breakup reactions using realistic potentials are presented.
