Non Relativistic Field Theory in Few-Body Atomic Physics

Conference paper
Part of the Few-Body Systems book series (FEWBODY, volume 6)


A Field-Theoretic formulation of e+-atom scattering is considered, leading to a closed equation for the optical potential of the formalism. An RPA⊕Ladder approximation scheme is suggested and this is applied, numerically, to the e+-He system.
