Approximate Methods for Electron-Atom Collisions: Cross Section Calculations

  • G. F. Drukarev
Part of the Physics of Atoms and Molecules book series (PAMO)


In this chapter some of the approximate methods for cross section calculations will be considered. We do not intend to consider all existing methods, but only those which are mostly used and can be applied to a variety of particular cases. We will compare the results of calculations by various methods and with the experimental data.
