Historical Development and Present State of Swarm Research
This book addresses several areas of research in the field of atomic physics that may be investigated by swarm techniques. Most of the chapters assume that the reader is conversant with the topic, and the emphasis is on the latest results. However, in order to establish a broader perspective and a suitable background, this introduction provides some definitions, sketches some of the historical developments, and gives some general references that may be of interest to the reader.

Volume 2 covers electron collisions with molecules, photoionization, photodetachment of electrons from negative ions, radiative recombination, and bremsstrahlung. All kinds of electron collisions are discussed: elastic scattering; rotational, vibrational, and electronic excitation; dissociation; ionization; spin exchange; negative ion formation; and electron ion recombination. Also included are electron transport phenomena.Google Scholar
