Bethe-Ridge Effects in (e,2e) on H− (Using 6Dime)
The study of (e,2e) processes on neutral targets such as Hydrogen and Helium has provided a measure of knowledge as to the importance of competing physical effects that govern the shape of experimental Triple Differential Cross Sections 2,3,4. All of these studies emphasise that the calculated Triple Differential Cross Section is sensitive to the the form of both the initial and final states that one uses to approximate the problem. It is therefore reasonable, before embarking on a study of (e,2e) on H− also to anticipate a great sensitivity to the form of approximation that one uses, and to expect competing physical processes to have different relative effects to (e,2e) on neutral targets. It is the purpose of this paper to enlarge upon the theory presented in 5 and to demonstrate the applicability of the 6-Dimensional Integral Method 6, 7 in the study of (e,2e) on H− .
