Abstract : The first four chapters of this book (excluding one section) are devoted to quantum mechanical and semiclassical approximating methods. Both the wave and impact-parameter versions are discussed and explained. Particular attention is given to the coordinate systems used in these two versions. Chapter 5 covers classical methods that have been developed, and revived, during the last decade. Asymptotic variations of cross sections obtained by classical and quantum mechanical methods are compared. Twenty-six figures comparing calculated and experimentally determined cross sections are presented in Chapter 6 with associated discussions of what is calculated and what is measured. Of the three appendices, one is wholly devoted to the application of fractional parentage coefficients to problems of capture from many-electron atoms.
