Abstract : Comparison of a wide range of experimental stripping cross sections for atom-atom collisions with Firsov's statistical theory exhibits marked disagreement in a number of cases. A few scaling law more suitable for single-electron transitions is derived which provides a better description for these reactions. Also cross sections for stripping of ions fit well into this new scheme. (Author)
