Abstract : Studies conducted have investigated computational techniques in many-body systems of several types. These include relativistic two- and three-body equations of the Bethe-Salpeter type; atomic wave functions with correlations; helium fine structure; analyticity in scattering calculations. Several new techniques in numerical analysis, independent of any particular physical problem, have been found. Completed studies also include an analysis of the theory of cascade decays and on the scattering theory of composite particles. Publications covering these researches are referenced. Recent work includes developing techniques for studying atom-atom and ion-atom reactions using the eikonal approximation and evaluation of a recently completed theory of transport of electromagnetic radiation in a plasma.
