Abstract : A general and qualitatively exact theory is developed for quantum sticking coefficients alpha(k) in the small wave number limit. The theory covers Morse type to inverse square potentials, the latter representing long range potentials. The theory gives unambiguous answers to crucial questions in the problem and helps lead to an overall understanding of low-temperature adsorption. Keywords: Low temperature adsorption, Theory, Quantum sticking coefficient, Small wave number limit, Morse type potentials, Inverse square potential.
