Total cross sections inN-body problems: Finiteness and high energy asymptotics

  • Xue Ping Wang


We study the finiteness of total scattering cross sections from an arbitrary channel to a two-cluster channel and establish the high energy asymptotics for total scattering cross sections with initial two-cluster channel and those from an arbitrary channel to a two-cluster channel.
