Abstract : The conventional Born approximation formula for rearrangement collisions is used extensively in both atomic and nuclear physics. Ths formula contains a direct contribution from the heavy particle or core interction. A straightforward demonstration shows that for the usual case of a massive core this contribution does not appear, so that the only effect of this interaction is to distort the incident and outgoing waves. Such problems as the post-prior discrepancy are clarified. (Author)
