Abstract

The state of a free atom is described by the velocity of its motion, its internal energy and angular momentum. All these quantities may change in the act of a collision. For a long time the object of the collision theory was almost entirely confined to studying the changes in the velocity and energy of an atow However, in connection with the ideas and methods of optical pumping, radiofrequency and laser spectroscopy a new field of the collision theory is intensely developing. It is concerned with processes in which the angular momentum of an atom changes.
