Part of the Lecture Notes in Physics book series (LNP, volume 213)


Starting from the Faddeev equations a series expansion for the transition amplitude for electron emission is given, which serves as a basis for the discussion of approximations used in the literature and their range of validity for a given collision system and momentum of the ejected electron. Both target and projectile electron emission will be considered. Emphasis is laid on the asymmetry of the forward peak and its variation with system parameters, such as collision velocity and charge ratio Zp/ZT. The theoretical results will be confirmed by a comparison with experimental data.
