Faddeev Approach to Scattering in Atomic and Mesic Atomic Systems
Applications of the modified Faddeev equations to three-body Coulomb scattering problems are described. Recent results include the e − +He+ elastic scattering as well as scattering and fusion in flight in muonic atomic systems p + pμ, d + dμ, t + tμ and d + tμ. An oscillating energy dependence of the rate of fusion-in-flight for the symmetric systems is found, and a profound peak is established in the reaction d + tμ → 4He + n + μ at E = 76.3 eV. Effects due to the hyperfine interaction between nuclei and muon are also studied.
