Dynamical Collision Theory and Its Applications
Intended for experimental and theoretical nuclear, atomic, molecular and chemical physical scientists, and for advanced graduate students in these fields, this reference describes and analyzes the methods used for calculating physical collision problems to arbitrary accuracy. It also discusses how such methods are related to more conventional ones. The authors emphasize dynamical collision theory, a technique involving the solution of well-defined collision integral equations that incorporate both the interpartical interactions and the asymptotic boundary conditions. Much of the book is devoted to introducing methods of dynamical collision theory that have evolved for carrying out calculations of physical processes. The results of the applications of these methods are also reviewed. Because this dynamical strategy successfully organizes and explains a host of chemical, atomic, nuclear and hadronic phenomena, this book will be useful to researchers working in all of these fields.
