Abstract

In this rather compact summary we present an overview of the theoretical investigation of (e, 2e) processes that have been carried out by the

Belfast-Cambridge-Frankfurt Collaboration

during the last five years. This work has profited from close collaboration with the experimental group around W. Nakel in Tübingen.
