The Distorted-Wave Born Approximation

  • P. D. Kunz

The computer code DWUCK4 calculates the scattering and reaction observables for binary nuclear reactions using the distorted-wave Born approximation (DWBA). The calculations are performed using a zero-range interaction. This restriction is, in general, not important for inelastic scattering; however, it is an approximation for the calculation of particle transfer reactions. The spin of the projectiles may be any combination of spin 0, spin 1/2, or spin 1. The following physical description uses the notation and formulation of [5.1], which describes nuclear reaction theory in detail.
