Quantum Theory of Scattering by Ta-you Wu, Takashi Ohmura Encyclopedic source of pioneering work addresses aspects and applications of the quantum theory of scattering in atomic and nuclear collisions. Valuable text for students and reference for professionals. 1962 edition.
The observation and analysis of particle and wave scattering plays a crucial role in physics; numerous important discoveries, including nuclear fission, are the direct result of collision experiments. This concise volume crosses the boundaries of physics' traditional subdivisions to treat scattering theory within the context of classical electromagnetic radiation, classical particle mechanics, and quantum mechanics. An enlarged and improved edition of Roger G. Newton's text on the theory of scattering electromagnetic waves, this text explores classical particles and quantum-mechanic particles, including multiparticle collisions. This edition's updates include coverage of developments in three-particle collisions, scattering by noncentral potentials, and inverse scattering problems. Numerous problems, examples, notes, and references augment the text.
