Theory of (e,2e) Reactions

  • C. J. Joachain
Part of the Few-Body Systems book series (FEWBODY, volume 2)


The most detailed information presently available about the ionization of atoms by electron impact is obtained by analyzing triple differential cross sections, measured in (e,2e) experiments. In this article a survey is given of recent advances in the theoretical study of these (e,2e) reactions.
